    I wouldnt be worried as yet but on a sidenote....what does his colour look like . If "blotchy" , he is under some stress still. What are you feeding him , remember they are great grazers so provide some greens. Lastly what are the tankmates..sometimes they steal the food before he gets to it.

    I would guess just some nerves , but if you are really worried soak some Nori in garlic infused water and see how he reacts

    Mine does the same,even his eyes are covered with a white layer.Well I guess that is some kind of bacterial infection.
    I doesn't eat at this stage....but I'f seen him nip on some of the rocks.
