Hi.

Fin rot is bacterial infection wherein the fins appear disintegrated with the ray membranes sticking out and having white edges. What are your water parameters? The 'arm' you mentioned is pectoral fins.:)

Fireonthetrack, you might notice an odd flow of posts. I merged your two threads as this is getting confusing. One thread is better than two.

You have not posted your water parameters it seems. Pls post them as soon as possible.

The white patches appear to be a case of columnaris.

the fins that are breaking off seems like fin rot
Separated fins does not always mean it's finrot. It can be a case of torn fins which Melafix can cure. Use Jungle Fungus Eliminator if you clearly suspect finrot. It also helps against columnaris. No need to add salt as Jungle products already contain salt.

i dont no wat water parameter is as u can see my fish is in a bowl wiht no filter...should goldfsih be exposed to sunlight? thx pl zhelp :D :D :D
If I were you, I would buy a filter as soon as possible and try to start it. If you have no filters, then your water parameters are most likely at their worst for the fish. I am suspecting you may have ammonia and nitrites at detectable level and nitrates exceeding to dangerous levels already. What is your schedule for water changes?
