    I recently bought a small or and a goldfish from petsmart to add to my tank and have noticed the egde of the dorsal fin along with top lip have turned black. Also has a black spot on her side. Other fins have black edges too just not as noticeable. None of her tank mates seem to be affected. Anybody got any ideas what's going on?

    I agree with @csoth1, could you please list your water parameters for us? A picture of the fish to show the affected area might be good for us to help you, too.
