Whew..... :oops:
That's not something I would like to see well, ever.... And yes, that Cichlid is almost certainly going to die (If it hasn't already). At six years in age, it wasn't exactly young. But that is still too young to die of old age.
This Red Devil looks like it was overcome by a runaway fungus infection. A problem that was probably caused by a really high bacteria load in the water. The 'brown pellets' you mention, just look like chunks of his skin that sloughed off from the infection, and were caught up in the filter intake.
