What in the world does Nenet have?

I thought Id post this here, I need as much help as I can get.
I fed Nenet this morning, and when I did, all her fins immediately clamped down expect her pectoral fins, and she had difficulty swimming.
So I thought I would pass,
and came back home from school, and found her under her little leaf, with stress stripes.
I lifted it off, and she swam all funny again, darting this way and that.
So I went and came back from the pet store, and Nenet still had clamped fins, and she was hitting herself against the tank.
I think it was becuase she could see Pickle,
but she had this peachy colored line stright down her spine-no scales.
I put her in her own gallon, no gravel, a tiny it of aquarium salt, half the amount of water so she doesnt have to swim too hard, and her favourite little ornament.
I hope its enough, I couldnt buy any medicine, becuase I dont know what she has.
I need help identifying ASAP.
If she dies, Im going to be crushed!

...
Awh, she tried to come out for photos.
This is horrible, she was trying to pose with her fins all clamped up.

Could there have been a drastic temperature change over night? Does she have a heater? What temp is the water now?

I'd do a 100% water change every day. That way if she is sick it will help her get better soon.

Sorry for all the Q's! I hope she gets better soon!!!!!

Thanks doggyhog.
Well, Im near Vancouver, so its not too warm here.
I have a space heater i my room,
but it tends to go down at night.
Nenet hasnt been affected by that until now.
I dont have a heater for her,
and its around 70-75 C and warming up next to the heater.

Update Tues 3:16 PM

Water temp 75 F
Scales look like theyre growing back-slowly.
Some more activity.
Will tentatively come out into the light,
swim around, look for food.

Things are looking slightly up!
She showing a little more activity,
and came out today to take a look at me and try to beg for food.
She still prefers dark places,
but with some coaxing, will try to come out.
When I left the room for this update, she was swimming around at the top, back and forth.
Rather with some difficulty, but trying
I was worried about her going through the next day with even more trouble, but It looks like shes healing.
I tried to heat my room more, but my mum came in and packed my pillows and stuffs for moving.


Anyways,
wish me luck guys!
Looks like shes going to pull through x)
