so sorry Chromiskid, all i can suggest is a water change and some salt, looks like a bacterial infection, Ive tried many times to keep fancy goldfish and failed miserably every time, hopefully someone with something helpful will reply soon, all the best!

Looks like it may be specticemia.
This can be caused by poor water quality, among other thing.
Do you know your ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels?
Keeping the water extra clean through water changes may help, if water quality is good, you may want to try a broad spectrum antibiotic.

I would just do a water change and add dechlorinated tap water.
If you do not have a water test kit, most fish stores will test your water for free.
If you cant make it to the fish store, maybe try doing 25% water changes every day for the next week.
