Losing, as in... they are getting torn in the edges?
That's probably "just" fin rot, and there's surely some good medicine for this in your pet shop (:

But if this isn't what you mean, please tell me more!

this may help you, Lisa.

If it is fin rot, I learned the fins will not grow back. Also please contact your local pet store according to medical treatment possibilities

unfortunately that is so truee... fins dont grow back.. but they do repair themselves! Sonorus tore her fin on a decoration and it healed withhin weeks,. I hope it's not fin rot.. do you have sharp objects in your tank?

As long as most of the membrane is more or less intact but just torn it should grow back and heal without problems! Happened quite recently that a hostile gurami bit the fins to shreds on mom's newest goldfish! (Then she kept the gurami separated for a while) And the fins have healed beautifully by now (:

Unless it's a very severe case, when they might need suture. But that's rather only if (let's take the caudal fin as example) if it's split all the way to the caudal peduncle (:
