Disappearing Fins

Has anyone ever heard of another cause, besides a bacterial infection, that would cause fins to disappear? I have been checking out diseases and haven't found anything. We had someone bring in some large clowns, for trade. Two of them are missing some of their fins. There doesn't appear to be any fraying on the remaining fins. We are assuming it is due to poor water conditions, but one of the managers is afraid that it might be parasitic. Any opinions? Since they can't be resold, I can have them, but I want to make sure I'm not going to endanger my other guys. Any help would be appreciated.
