How to Cure Goldfish Fin Rot
Cure Fin Rot
Several possible treatments can do more harm than good in treating goldfish fin rot. Avoid using potassium permanganate or formalin since it is highly caustic and can cause burns on the goldfish. Instead use a .03% aquarium salt. If the goldfish fin rot is more serious, give the sick goldfish a bath treatment using the antibiotic furazone green. This antibiotic bath treatment can disrupt biological filters so it’s important to bypass the filters and in goldfish ponds with ultraviolet sterilization or filters that contain carbon can neutralize furazone green. Consider treating the sick goldfish in a quarantine tank. If you are willing and able to give your sick goldfish an injection, Baytril is known to safely treat goldfish fin rot.
Prevent Fin Rot
Goldfish fin rot is typically the result of improper care and poor water quality that leads to stress of the goldfish. Continue to preform routine water changes and maintain optimal water conditions. Add a slime coat protector to maintain a healthy protective slime coat.

I don’t think my fancy gold fish had fin rot, but, I think the other regular goldfish might have been picking at it. Is there anything I can do to help the fins grow back?
I’d try a slime coat protector and think about putting the fish in a separate tank so it can heal.
