Probably jumped and hit something. Clean water should be enough but you have to you may add some aquarium salt or catappa leaves to prevent any eventual infections

Yeah it's pretty easy for Aros to get scratches, they heal up pretty quick,. esp. if lighter ones like that -- luckily it didn't lose the scale there, which takes a lot longer to get back to normal appearance.
