Fin problems? Agassizii fire red.

Hey, I've got a pair of Agassizii fire red. I've noticed some deterioration of the caudal and dorsal fins, the caudal also has these faint white spots, there is also a more distinct white spot on the left pectoral fin. Is this an infection? And what should my plan of action be from here on,. As shown in the pictures he is currently busy taking care of his fry.

I only see that one spot on the pectoral fin, which looks a lot like a broken fin ray. The caudal looks perfectly fine, as does the dorsal.

Plan of action: Observe and keep any urge to a kneejerk reaction under control. Such cases often only go haywire due to the owner not being able to stand back, wait and observe.

There's nothing to do here. If you want to feel like you're helping add some humic substances in the form of leaf litter or elder cones. Not gonna do anything dirwctly but always a good idea with dwarf cichlids.
