Hi, it's hard to say from the photo, but it looks like fungus or damage. You might want to treat the tank with some fungus meds as it can spread.

Welcome to AA
It's hard to say from the picture. Its most likely a bacterial infection of some sort. True fungal infections don't happen very often. First thing you need to look at is the condition of the tank. Water parameters, what fish and how many of them. Stressed fish are more susceptible to disease and can be harder to cure. Bacterial infections can be cured with something as simple as lots of clean water and some salt (depending on the type of fish) but more serious infections may require antibiotics. If you can provide us with some more details of your tank then it will help with diagnosis.
