What can this be?... how do I fix it?

I've noticed that this front is not as happy as he used to be... so today, after some cleaning up and a 40% water change i noticed the side fins and tail look a little bit damaged.

Could this be a fongus?... :-?

How do you suggest I treat this?
PS.: sorry for the bad cell photos

To me it looks like nipped fins. I see you're keeping some Malawis in there as well, they are not supposed to be together with Frontosas. Not only that they're coming from different biotopes, but their feeding behaviour is so different as well. Frontosas are not as competitive for food or as active as Malawi Cichlids.

I strongly recommend you do a Tanganyikan setup... Frontosa and other compatible fish.
