That could be caused by a number of things! First of all, test your water chemistry. pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
Also, look for any abnormal signs aside from the behavior. Does your fish have any wounds, dots/spots or fluffy parts? (fluffy = fungus)

Fin rot you say? Unfortunately I'm not from the States, but I'm sure you could find some pet shops rather easily (:
Just google something like "pet shop auckland" or sth Wink If not I've heard of shops like Walmart or Petco... they should have some meds! (:

Or is it Auckland in NZ?
Here in Australia we do get API Products in our Petshops, like PETBARN, PetSTOCK or PETSUPPLIES.

Quite a few members here, including me, believe in Melafix and Pimafix.
I also recommend to purchase your own master test kit for your water parameters. Then you know for sure how your water chemistry is.
