Help!!!! Cardinal fish sick?

Have a saltwater tank with several fishes and invertebrates. I have 1 cardinal fish that has been doing fine- all of a sudden on his left side towards the back i noticed a gash or cutlime line goin from the top to the bottom of the fish. Anh idea what this is or why its there? Fish is acting normal for itself but i just dont unnderstand this whitish line running down the left side. What is it, what caused it and what do i do to fix it?

They could of cut the cardinal with their tail fin. If your water parameters are ok it is possible that happened .
