    Hi all,

    I saw this mark on my copper band about three days ago it's got slightly bigger over the last three days. He is still eating and terrorizing my LPS but I would like to know what it could be.

    It almost looks like someone took an eraser and erased that part of it's side....

    His good side

    And now his bad side.
