The main cause of fin rot is poor water quality. All aquariums contain bacteria that is not usually harmful to your goldfish. However, your goldfish is prone to infection if he has a compromised immune system or lives in high stress conditions. Elevated bacteria caused by infrequent cleaning and insufficient water treatment leaves your goldfish open to infection. If an open wound occurs because of poor handling, sharp aquarium ornaments or from a nippy cohabitant fish, the wound becomes a portal of entry for bacteria. Bacteria grows in the fish's intestines producing a toxic mucus. The toxins are absorbed by the intestines and enter the bloodstream, according to Happy Goldfish. Once in the bloodstream, damage can occur to vital organs.
