My Mr. Big had clamped fins too, although his tank was warmer but he also had no loss in appetite and was acting normall. this is what I did to treat it.

I did a complete 100% change at least every other day (with a small change every day), and added aquarium salt (1 teaspoon for every 2 gallons is mine) and bought a type of cure all med thing from Jungle Labs at walmart and used that too.

Five days later, Mr. Big looks MUCH better... his fins aren't clamped anymore :]
