Just picked this up from the local fish store today. I did a quick inspection of all of my fish, but given that I got 13 today I must not have seen this one from the right angle... I was acclimating it and noticed that it had something funky. I have absolutely no idea what this is can anyone ID it?

When I see a new anthias with an "injury" the first thing that comes to mind is Uronema. This lesion however, is a bit darker and more anterior than I usually see. Still, you might want to read this article:
