I moved my large comet goldfish because it has extreme finrot Crying or Very sad it was lying around on the bottom of the tank with clamped fins. Will my other fish get it or not pH is about 6.5-7. and how long should I use the medication for?

What medication are you using? How do you know it's finrot? Usually a bad case of finrot takes several days to develop, it's not a sudden thing.
If you really have finrot, you'll need to use Tetracycline or Maracyn 2 for the directed period of time. I recommend that you treat for the recommended time, change 50% of the water, wait 24 hours and start another round.
Usually finrot is caused by a weakened fish, bad water quality, or both. Your other fish likely will not develop fin rot unless the water quality is indeed bad, in which case it will recur. HTH.
