His tail is torn, in other words? Then it might just be fin rot, which isn't that difficult to get rid of once you'd start treating.
But if you said that some scales are missing too, it's not impossible that he might be bullied by your other fish... is he new? And did you notice any such behavior?

well, he really doesnt like to be around other fish. When my black moor gets near he quickly swims away. I was hoping it would be fin rot because i do have the medicine for it. Maybe if i can i will post pictures of him. right now he is in the hospital tank by his lonesome. and to be honest it looks as thought he is a bit happier.  Grin

Ah, as long as the treatment is having effect on him it's all good (:

I read that it would be easier to introduce the fish to eachother if you would put all of them in the main aquarium at once! Then they're be on a similar newbie level Wink Later of course, when you'd put him back (:
