Tail fins

I have an african cichlid tank and I noticed all my fish have a chunk taken out of there tail fin besides my albino pindani ?????? What do I do? Will this lead to death? Do I need to remove fish? HELP!

at least you know who the culprit is. If it continues I would remove him I have seen tanks with mbuna tail nibbled down to nubs.

Mbuna will often take bites out of each other's finnage.

You could treat with a medication such as Melafix but it really isn't necessary, you'd be amazed at some of the injuries my fish have able to come back from just with a little bit of stress coat and proper maintenance.
