    Almost looks like fin rot. You see it frequently in fresh water fish due to stress (over crowding, poor water conditions, poor food/variety, low oxygen levels, etc). I'm not sure about salt water. The maracyn is a broad spectrum antibiotic that I didn't realize it worked for salt water fish as well. (I keep learning more things )

    Good luck

    I have never had this issue with Salt water. I did have a case of Fin rot with a True flying fox (fresh water) I treated the entire tank with All Natural Melafix (made by aquarium pharmaceuticals, inc... With in three days I had seen improvements. The bottle states it is safe for saltwater. I would look them up on the web and read a little more
