Okay so on both sides of my Bosemani rainbowfish, there is like a line of scales that seem to be either missing or turned black... it couldnt have been nipped at because heres my setup:

38G long:
9 harlequin rasboras
1 bosemani rainbow
2 sailfin plecos (small)
1 albino bushynose pleco (very small)
3 dojo loaches


any ideas guys?

Hard to say man ..I would put the plecos as my number one suspect LOL ..If the plecos are large ..They can easily remove a few scales from another fish . But you do indicate that they are not ? Personally I don't like the things and they can be aggressive .To me they are trash fish .But to each is own ..Why are you keeping that bosemani rainbow all by itself ? Aren't all rainbows schooling fish ? If so a stressed fish will lose scales .

Hope he pulls threw good luck !

Pleco rasping is possible but stress or ammonia could be part of it?

The rainbow should have company but the plecos do need a larger tank as they can grow to half the lenght of your 38g.
