Angelfish Fins

Hello, I have an angelfish that has(had) nice and full fins. He is about 1 to 1.5 inches long(not including fins). Tonight, I noticed that his top fin seemed partly gone, just a little, with a black tip. I don't think he had this before. Also, it seems to be coursing through the rest of his fin. I have another angelfish, 2 black moor goldfish, a fantail goldfish, and 2 guppies in the same tank. Is this fin rot or a fin nipper? Thank you in advance, I'm so worried. Also, if you know how I should fix this, please let me now ASAP.

IF there is a black tip it sounds like he has fin rot. A little AQ salt should fix him up.

1 teaspoon per gallon for the AQ salt.

Where can I buy this? Also, can I put it in while the fish is still in the tank? BTW I noticed that sometimes my goldfish chase the angelfish.

Might be fin rot, might be a nipper, hard to tell without a pic. What size tank do you have these fish in? You have a temperature issue between the goldies, who like cooler temperatures, and the angels, who like warmer temperatures.

I's put the angel in a quar tank, 50% water changes daily for a week, every other day for the second week, wait 10 minutes before adding dechlor after the water change.

Can you add dechlorinator while the fish is in the water? Also, I'm aware of the goldfish difference, I have an extra tank but I may use it to temporarily use it for a rescued betta. I will move those into better suited conditions soon enough. Thank you, I will try to get a picture.

Yes you can add dechlor when the fish are in the water, I do it as a matter of practice with my tanks. Most are drilled with overflows for water changes, hang a hose & time it out, 4gpm.
