    That's a pearlscale. In my experience, when the fins stiffen like that and stay curved in odd positions, it is a sign of chemical burn. Probably the ammonia or nitrite in your tank is hitting toxic levels. What size tank is that? What other fish are in there?

    Let us know your water parameters.
    I groom ranchus. That is all.

    My tank has 110 Liters water.

    It has 3 baby angels and one gold fish.

    Ammonia: Zero
    Ph:7

    i keep changing water once in a week (70%)

    Could this be fin rot...I see white color at the edges of the fin..

    Fin rot would also be a symptom of a water issue, although if the ammonia is 0 and you are keeping up the water changes, I doubt the nitrites are high, but it might be worth checking. How long has the tank been active?

    The tank is active for 3 months now...
    I think nitrites are the issue.
    Today i see red spots on the back tails...
    I will get testing equipment for that.

    Thanks for the inputs.

    If you still have nitrites in your water, then chances are your tank is not cycled, or something happen to create a mini cycle

    Either way, I would suggest handling this just as you would when you are cycling a tank with fish. Check your parameters daily and complete water changes when/if your ammonia or nitrite reach 0.5ppm

    The cycle with fish thread here will explain this process better than I can. There's a link to it in my sig below
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    29 gallon tank with 3 angels and one goldfish is a problem. Not only are you trying to keep warmwater fish with coldwater fish, you are very overstocked.
