fights his way to the shrimp pellets,and gives the large plec a run for
his money,not acting like a sick fish at all,

I think that very well could be a heater burn. I'm pretty sure one of my adult silver dollars has one on his side. The shape and angle are perfect if he got between the heater and the back of the tank after being moved to a new tank. It really had me worried at first as I didnt know what it was and it didn't seem to be healing, but 2 weeks later now its nearly gone.
The patch was white and swollen, and after a few days got dark around the edges and stated slowly shrinking.
It makes sense that fish would be slow to realize they are being burned since there is little danger of burns in the wild.

hi
thanks for your input :)
well he's doing well,and is continuing eating and joining in the the other fish.
i think you're right,the mark is no bigger or worse today than anyother day.
i hope it will clear up soon,i'm keeping the water as clean as possible,
so hopefully there will be no secondary infection.
:)
