this is a severe infection.have you tried maracyn or erythromycin? fin rot came from poor water quality, but then the bacterial infection sets in. if you don't help them soon. it will not end well.

I didn't see any rot.. any chance that the others could of eaten the fins?

How often and what % of water do they change per week? Goldfish needs extra filtration, and plenty of water changes because of the amount of ammonia they produce - this could of been ammonia burning/poisoning.

Usually 2 filters with 1-2 50% water changes per week (including vacuuming the substrate) is needed with goldfish.. but I didn't see any blackened edges on the fins/body which would indicate fin rot..

i'm still thinking it's fin rot. are there red streaks coming from the base of the tail? does the tail looks like it's disintegrating? i think these fish need antibiotics.

There are red streaks like veins. I just came home one day and saw it half gone so I don't know.
