Goby beats up on betta sometimes, black clown is mean to my small occy clown, foxface beats himself up, and goby also likes to chase the flame hawk sometimes.... He might hurt the fox sometimes too....

What size yank do you have ? I think your best bet is , he has scratched him self on something on the tank. Your other fish couldn't make those types of marks. If you have a isolation tank to keep a better eye on him and treat him , that would be a great idea.

Only thing to do is move some live rock and hope all goes well. We pretty much found the problem. One last question. Are the marks on the scales are in the scales ?

I doubt that was from the filter, fox faces are smarter than that plus it would be a mark that matches the filter like a hickey and those are scratches. My guess is something spooked him and he went crashing into a hiding spot. My fox face scratched himself up when I was trying to remove him to hospital tank. They are very clumsy when scared!!!!!!!

I had a foxface years ago in one of my tanks and he was really skiddish. I had live rock in the tank but also some dead coral pieces. He would get freaked and wedge himself in the dead coral until the coast was clear and come out. Why he didn't hide in the little caves I had made for him is beyond me. I don't know if you have anything like that in your tank that would cause the scratches. Have you tried isolating him to make sure he isn't rubbing against your live rock? Hmmm...how long have you had him? Did you isolate him and the others prior to putting in your main tank and treat for parasites? He looks healthy minus the scratches. Beautiful fish!
