Looks to be possible bacterial infection, Would review all water parameters,maint schedule. Would review foods offered.
Would see that no sharp rocks or other decor was in the tank or fishes that could cause harm.
Would isolate the fish and treat with Maracyn and Maracyn II .
Would lower temp to 74 degrees f to slow possible infection.If you can't isolate the fish by placing it in cycled,filtered tank,, then treat the whole tank as per directions on medications.
Keep an eye on water parameters during medications.
Many fishes become Ill when water quality begins to suffer, and with clean water(no levels of toxins),,, many fishes can recover quickly.
