^ -- Byron... your pics make me miss my angelicus loaches... T_T RIP I had 5, died in the crash with my large clown loaches T_T.

anyway /rant, the pics don't look like there's a disease to me, but you may want to see clearly and do some more research, since that 1st pic looks like a fuzzy piece so it may be fungus -- but most of the tail's missing -- how's water parameters?

The fish looks like some kind of African cichlid. And the spot to me looks like fungus (which is more likely bacterial). Keep the water clean with some extra water changes and keep a watch on it. A lot of times these spots will clear up with good water parameters. If it gets worse and you start to see some red spots then you may need to start thinking about meds. The tail does look frayed. Not sure if it's finrot or due to nipping from tankmates.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

thx for the help. if you look at my OP params are fine zero ammonia nitrite and low nitrates, as i said she is on the reciving end of everyone, so the fins missing is due to the aggression in the tank seeing how its a african tank. but anways red spots are what i need to watch for?
