Who is with him and what size is the tank ?
Looks like he had a go around with some other nocturnal fish IMO ?

They are in a 30 gallon long. With 2 oscars, 2 Green Severums, small jack dempsey , 3 plecos and a featherfin catfish. I know it is overstocked. I have like 4000lph turn over rate. And will be getting a bigger tank for Christmas.

Thanks for the quick reply

Um is this post real? Like ouch, every fish you have needs a bigger tank you're like 400+% overstocked you will need 1000% of the tank space you have now, also your going to have major aggression issues.

With a bio load like that it will be fin rot in short order.
How much filter you have matters little compared to water changes and bio load created by fish to the water volume. No filter commonly found on a 30g will keep up with the Oscars and plecos alone. Circulation only really counts in marine tanks as the live rock is basically the filter so flow increases filtering ability.
If this was my tank to care for I would be doing 50% water changes every other day....
Water quality will either save that fish or kill it.

Water parameters are good

PH: 6.0
Ammonia: 0ppm

Finrot over nite?
And as I already said I know I am over stocked. I am getting a 4ft x 2ft x 2ft tank for Christmas.

Yes you can get anything over night just like a human, like yesterday I felt great today I feel like I'm on my last leg, as for the bigger tank you're still going to have issue with aggression.
I see you didn't post nitrite or nitrate, nitrite kills them as well as ammonia, nitrate weakens their immune system above a certain ppm, Do you have those test results? I dint know if it's the picture or if that's how the plecos tail is supposed to look like but it looks shredded from aggression.

With fin and tail rot you have to keep the water extremely clean for it to heal, if there's aggression the fish won't stop attacking that specific spot so it'll never heal, hence why a 50% water change every other day as coralbandit said.

I don't have a nitrate, nitrite test but I will get one. And ill start by doing 50% water change every other day. And I might have to think about rehousing some of my fish.

What water conditioner do you use? And nitrite is just as important as ammonia, nitrate is probably through the roof with that much bioload in a 30 gallon
