Hard to tell 100% from the pic but looks like uronema marinum.

This would be my guess as well. Treatment with cp or metro would be effective if caught early.

I'm sorry for noobie questions, but what is CP and metro? I want to order more of those fish and be prepared for such sickness.

Chloroquine phosphate and metroplex by seachem.

Anthias and chromis are infamous for coming in with the bacterial disease mentioned above.

+1
you would need a vet to write you a prescription for Chloroquine Phosphate and then you get it filled at diamnondbackdrugs.com. It will treat for ich, velvet, uronema and brook. Its great if you can get it.
you treat only ONCE at a rate of 40mg/g (if treating prophylactically) up to 80mg/g (if visible disease present) for 30 days and you are done.
