That's what my nasos scratches looked like from my lobster..... Except there was skin missing. Is it covered by skin or are some places pierced? Could just be stress marking from the temp.

Is the coloration on the scales or in the scales ? What are your ammonia levels at.

It could be ammonia burns but it dosent look like it . Has he been flashing ? That could explain the scratches. If so you might want to treat the water with rally.

Flashing is when your fish will rub its body on a rock due to irritation from something. If its doing that then you might want to consider he may have a parasite. Any new changes ? Adding a new fish , rock or coral. I'm currently having this flashing problem with my coral beauty angel.

I'm in the same boat as you. Lol try moving some live rock near the filter and keep a eye on him. Lastly check your ammonia and try to see if anyone is picking on him. What type of live stock do you have.?
