Sorry if you can see the black splotches on the fins in the video the just gradually started appearing in the last week On the dorsal and pelvic fin they are splotches and the pectoral fin is a circle it's like a film the fins are not damaged there is no blood or anything that looks like it is harming the fish

It's not close enough to see the black spots, could you try to get a closer picture/video?

 

Could be Black Spot Disease, does the fish scratch on rocks?

Do a google search for "Anthias changing sex."

 

Without a great picture I can't be sure, but the colors are dark in the exact places that Lyretail Anthias start when they are changing sex.

 

EDIT: Yeah, I'm almost positive now after looking at your blurry pics a bit closer. Your "she" is about to become a "he." It takes awhile and they look pretty ugly mid-transformation. But the positive is that he'll become a very colorful pink/red in the end and have some fanciful dorsal fin.
