HELP! My clown loches need help...

I don't think it's dire, but it's bothering me. My clowns (and some other fish) developed this sort of ragged white stuff on the edges of their tail and top fins. It looked like fin rot at first, so I tried medication for about week with no improvement, though the fins stopped deteriorating. Now this white stuff just sticks to the fin edges without worsening or going away and I just can't continue to experiment with meds in a 100 gallon tank with no quarantine tank (the fish are too big). I might be able to get a picture, but does anyone know what's going on and what I should do??
