Look's like damage from netting the fish,or possibly somethnig in the way of decor that the fish has perhap's got caught on.
Would maintain water quality with weekly 50 % water changes, and feed variety of quality food's for cichlid's (NO feeder fish).
Hikari pellet food,New life spectrum,bit's of Earthworm's,Krill, cricket's would be welcomed by the fish.
Would lay off food's like bloodworm's which have near zero nutritional value.
Water parameter's must read zero for ammonia and nitrites all day,every day,and nitrAtes (with an A) should be kept under 40ppm with 20 ppm being ideal albeit difficult as these fish grow to approx ten inches inside a year.
Filtration should be vigorous,and tank of at least 90 gal for two grown Adult's.(larger would be better)
