You really need to answer the questions that were asked before you can expect to receive accurate answers or helpful advice:
Tank age ?
Parameters :
Ammonia ? actual reading
NitrIte? actual reading
NitrAte? actual reading
PH? actual reading
Temp ? actual reading
SPG ? actual reading and how measured (hydrometer or refractometer)
how much live rock ? in pounds. Was it fullly cured?
Other tank residents ?

Keeping high water quality is one of the best ways to keep healthy fish. If you have terrible water parameters, you will most likely have sick fish. No different than humans, really. But if you haven't got a clue about your water parameters, or don't care, you're missing perhaps one of the easiest things to help your fish heal.

Sorry just had to throw in my 2 cents. . .

but I'm not sure how you can "not care" about the welfare of a fish after the expense of paying for the tank, equipment, etc. What good is it to diagnose the "disease" of the fish if you don't care that the other fish are bullying it? BTW, the stress alone from the bullying could be enough to kill him or cause the discoloration. Stress from poor water conditions I'm sure can have similar effects.

I just don't understand your apathy and disregard for the fish when I'm sure you've shelled out quite a bit to set the tank up.
