randalls goby

posted this in the fish health section but it doesn't seem to get many hits:

arrrgggghhh!
just back from two weeks in france to find all not well in my marine tank. the usual stuff when you are away, skimmer stopped working, kh a little low, salinity a bit high.

but the real worry is my randalls goby. before i left he had a little red spot/line which i thought might have been a graze or something....its a lot worse now.

does anyone know what it is or how to treat it? i plan on putting him in qt tomorrow after my water change. he is still active and eating well. all other fish seem perfect.

water is as follows:

temp - 24.5 C
ph - 8.2
salt - 1026
kh - 6.6
nitrate -zero

he was in qt for 4 weeks and added to the main system at the end of november
thanks in advance

maybe the pic doesnt do it justice. in real life half his face is missing. i dont have any anemones. just musrooms, button polps, tiny amount of apistasia etc.
