    Looks like it's been scratched on a rock or something. Best thing to do is remove it into a QT tank and treat it against bacterial or fungal infections. Do this until it's healed up nicely and pop it back into the display tank.

    Feed it generously on some high quality foods.

    I have a boxer as well, he will nip at them while they lay "asleep". I've often seen mine with scars.
