Could mild fin rot what I would do is increase water changes that will help to lower the bacterial count in the water and add some Indian almond leaves as they have antibacterial and antifungal properties you will need to add 1 leaf per gallon to get a beneficial effect for a week if it gets worse in that time then you want to treat with antibiotic medication such as kanaplex or maracyn2
