Kinda sounds like fin rot...

What are your water parameters?

Hard to tell when it's dead, unfortunately... Could be any number of types of fungus: fin rot, columnaris, sapro, etc.

Columnaris and Sapro are pretty hard to diagnose, but here's a good article on them as well as how to treat them: Columnaris (Flexibacteria) in Aquarium Fish; Fungus, Saprolegnia; Treatment, Prevention

If it's just fin rot then clean water (daily water changes) and aquarium salt should do the trick.
