Looks bad, try to separate him from the others so he doesn't infect them, and treat the others just in case.

Welcome to Fishlore!

That looks like a serious bacterial infection to me. Can you list exact water parameters? pH, temp, ammonia, nitrites, nitrates

Tank size and complete stocking?

HI water is 0 ammonia o nitrite 20 nitrate 7.7 ph this tank just finished cycling Monday when I had my first 0 ammonia and 0 nitrite last week had big nitrite spike and was doing water changes daily thank God the cycle is now done as the tank is only 6 weeks old I've got 2 albino plecos 5 adult Mickey mouse platypus and 3 baby ones and 4 black skirt tetras the rest of the fish look fine

Meant to say plattys not platypus (autocorrect) and tank size is 125l (roma125)

Temp 25.4

Here's a picture of 2 others I think they look ok

How's he doing?

I would keep up with water changes - clean water can help them heal, even if the water parameters are in check.

You have stocking issues if you'd like to discuss them
