OT - Very Sick Cichlid

On of my cichlid's tail suddendly rotted off!! Her pectoral fins also rotted off and now here body looks as if it is rotting off too!!! I took her out and put her in a clean bottom QT tank. I put some fungus eliminator, salt, and Maracide. She is still quite active, despite her illness and was wondering if anyone had a clue why she got so sick??

All of my other cichlids are fine and dandy. They left my sick one alone before I took her out. My pH for them is 7.6 - 7.8 and the temp in the tank is 77 degrees F.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
