    It has showed up predominantly on the right side of my scopas tang, his eyes also looked kind of foggy the other day, he is still eating normally and everything it just doesn't look right.

    It looks like scrapes on his side? His eyes do look a bit foggy..are they "bugged" out a little? Test your water.

    I think it is just scrapes too. I had a new Tang that would get those marks when he was still new. After a few weeks it cleared up completely.

    I have to two possible answers.

    The eyes do look cloudy but I can't tell if the tang has spots or if it is the glass.Possible Ich and the side could be hemorrhaging(bleeding below the skin like a bruise) from scratching on the rocks.If not that another possibility is a bacterial infection,which also has the symptoms of hemorrhage below the skin.
