Rich - It looks like your Hippo scraped up against something...possibly a rock or coral. Anytime they have some sort of trauma to their "skin", it will turn a lighter color. When we introduced our Hippo to our system, I could always tell where the Yellow tang had "whacked" her by the round white dot that would ensue. Don't worry about it...it'll go away in a couple of days. ;)

Mine has done that also...has even touched either an anemone or a torch and got a white spot. It will go away...
