Looks like there was some kind of trauma . what are his other tank mates?
Keep water perameters high and offer foods soaked in selcon and garlic. Perhaps a better pic would help ... Stress will cuase them to stop eating so try to keep stress at a minimum

I agree with Sadie that it looks like some sort of trauma. Do you have any tangs in the tank. Never mind I looked in your info and you do have a yellow tang. It looks like that could be where he got spiked by the yellow tang. They dont call them surgeon fish for no reason. Keep water conditions at pristine conditions so as not to develope any secondary bacterial infection. If it starts to look worse then you might have to QT and treat for bacterial infection. I hope all goes well.

he didn't make it. I was going to setup a quarantine and treat with maracyn, but the spot got huge in a hurry and then it was over. I recently added two emerald mythrax crabs.....could this have been it? I realize it could have been the tang, too, but these two seem to get along fairly well.

It's very odd indeed.

My guess would be the tang. It`s hard to pinpoint without seeing the fish up close but that is my guess.

Sorry for your loss . It very well may have been a nip/attack of the crab . How big is he ? They can be very opportunistic .

Ok, now I can see it. My disease book is at work. It looks like wither a sting or infection. I'll get back to you, just make sure you bump this post on Monday. It might help for future reference.
