    I left for Christmas for a week and when I came back one of my Turquoise Rainbows had developed a black area on one side of it's body and I have no idea what it is or what caused it.

    I don't know about rainbows, but when my blood parrots get stressed, they develop a black spot. Maybe it's the same for yours. You were gone for a week and their normal schedule might have been disrupted, causing a bit of stress.

    that was actually my first thought but I've been home for a week now and I've done a water change and nothing has changed

    Sometimes it takes a little time for them to re-adjust.
