Ok so its been a day or so... they still look so sick. The purple wont swim!! He just stays in his little corner all day with his back touching the surface. Hes still eating but not as well as he was. When I brought this fish home for the first time and for like 3 weeks after that.... SO ACTIVE. Swimming all happy. When I put food in there before he would like almost fly out of the water. Now if i wanted too I could pick him up out of the water and hold him. (i wont do that) just saying!

And the blue and yellow guy. When i got his fish...his body was NAVY BLUE. So pretty. Now his color is almost a dark gray. He seems skinny and like I said before his back end his like bottom heavy. His dorsal fin and tail fin are like just hanging there. And I dont know if im just seeing things but kinda looks like he had white stuff on him. But it kinda just seems like thats his color now. Im in need of some SERIOUS help. I dont know what is wrong with my fish. Im so sad. I almost want to wash my hands of them. Im so stressed out. Please....

I would start aquarium salt 3tsp/gal treatment on them

Place them in Qt container-small like the temporary cups they come in, water temp 76-77F-dim lit, quiet sure and cover...

Premix some treatment water in a 1gal jug of dechlorinated water-Add aquarium salt 3tsp/gal and tannins-either IAL or dried Oak leaf-let this steep for 30min and use this premixed Tx water for 50% water changes every 15min for 1hour-total of 4 water changes today and tomorrow start 100% daily for 10 days....

On day 2 of treatment-offer small frequent meals

Keep us posted....
