White hole in ram cichlids tail

Prevasist

Ive encountered a weird problem. It looks like my fish hurt its rear fin and now has a hole thats getting bigger. Its surrounded by white which leads me to believe its infected but i dont know how to fix it.

Please help, im quite new to the aquarium life.

Looks like a bacterial ulcer. The white stuff, which circles the hole is likely fungus, feeding on dead tissue.
I'm not a big fan of aquarium specific antibiotics. They rarely cure and can cause more harm than good.
You might try Melafix. Some doubt it's effectiveness, but the owner of my LFS, uses Pond Strength Melafix to treat his tanks.
