sorry you have a rough situation in joining OFL, but water is good and tank is good have no meaning to us... we need the water parameters : ammonia? nitrite? nitrate? pH? tank size? fish in there? filtration capacity and type?

loosing scale and fins is always associated with bad water condition... we will wait for your input.

Welcome to our community. I'm afraid Paul is correct, we will need a photo really, that would be the easiest way to see what is going on. Also, what Paul has asked for as well, you need to carry out a water test so we can see exactly what condition your water is in.

Sadly people often tell us that their tank and filtration is perfectly okay, when in fact it is totally inadequate. Let us be the judge when it comes to filtration tank size and water conditions, that way we can help you quicker. :-)

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)
