I'm sorry to hear he's sick.  This could be a lot of things, like parasites, bad bacteria, a virus, or fungus.  Look for spots, color change, darting around, and any other symptoms to try to narrow it down.

Are you sure the nitrates are 0 and not the nitrites?

I would suggest something as quick and easy as a large water change Smiley How much do you usually change and how often? Do you clean the gravel with a gravel cleaner when you do maintenance?
From now on I'd recommend 50% minimum a week. And you could feed them twice a day actually Wink They'll grow better and bigger with more nutrition since goldfish can't store it Smiley
So, now test the water again, write down the results (post them if you want) and change up to 70% of the water.
