40 Gallon Tank Angelfish injured/sick? Help

Hi guys the other day I realized that my Angelfish, Gabe, possibly injured himself somehow or has come down with some sort of disease/illness. My water parameters are pretty stable always at 0ppm Ammonia, 0ppm Nitrites, and averaging 0-30ppm Nitrates depending on the time of the week. pH is usually around 7.5

I have another Angelfish in there named Princess and she is a KoiAngel. Never had any problems with her except the other day I could have sworn she had stringy white poop but no other illnesses seen. I also keep 2 GBR's, an SAE, 9 Cory's, 3 Oto Cats, 2 Vampire Shrimp and 6 Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish.

I am thinking he may have tried to peck at the heater, it does get quite hot sometimes and possibly while it was heating up Gabe had plucked at it.
Princess and Gabe have been trying to spawn and semi-recently had their first attempt at spawning on an Amazon sword near the heater. But I am afraid mistakenly tried to clear off or get the heater ready for spaning and burnt himself.

I also fear that maybe he has come upon some sort of disease or parasite? Worst fear is hole in the head disease....

Someone let me know what they think... I checked on him earlier today and he's kind of just staying real still in the back of the aquarium.


Side note they are all in a 40-gallon breeder with Fluval 307 Canister Filter and a Tidal 70 HOB.

Someone please help, it’s gotten so much worse today. I’ve done water changes and everything and about to put him in his one quarantine tank. He now has a distinct hole in his mouth/jaw. More of an eroded hole, not a pin hole.
