Any ideas ?

Assuming the fish....new or old?

If new I'd say damage with infection. The pelvic/anal fin look like its losing some color.

If old then may be a scar.

Oh ok, new new. Maybe heater burn if it just happened. Id watch the fish, but it looks like a large area on it. If this is infact recently from the heater you may want to consider treatment for infection especially if tissue sloughs off or it becomes open. As to treatment I don't know and would have to read up on this, plus you have prazipro in the tank. Hopefully some one who has dealt with this will chime in.

So the heater can do something like this ? I thought about that but didn't think it could hurt the fish. Maybe he slept on it ?

I was thinking the same thing when I saw it. Looks like he got up against the heater while it was hot. Just to be sure, I would move the heater to another location. Can't really tell how it is arranged in the tank from the photo.
