      There is a major infection in that tail area and a couple of other smaller areas are in question. This fish needs antibiotics. My preference would be injectable Baytril or Amikacin, but these are hard to get, requiring a vet to prescribe. If you don't have a very good relationship with a vet that is willing to work with you, then I would use Tricide Neo as a spray. Tricide Neo is a strong antibiotic that is marketed as a bath in 1 gallon and 5 gallon packets. If you buy the one gallon packet, divide it into quarters, mix one quarter with one quart of distilled water in a spray bottle, the fish can be kept wetted with the solution without wasting so much product for the duration of the recommended time on the package. Store the ramaining quarters in the freezer in air tight packages. The fish will need to be anesthetized with either clove oil (available at GNC and some drug stores) or MS222 during the treatment.
