Unhappy Somethings killing my fish.

Hi guys recently my fish have gotten sick...By the time i noticed my poor boy fender was sick it was too late. Both of the other fish that inhabited the tank with him have gotten sick as well. Im sorry I cannot post pictures at this time but I will do the best i can to explain what is happening. When i first noticed fender was sick he was acting very lathargic and sitting on the bottom alot since he was a dark colored fish i didn't notice anything was wrong with his fins but he had a white cottony growth under his gills. Sadly after moving him to a smaller one gal tank for QT ,until i could get some meds, he passed during the night. Today when i looked in my tank the other two males on the other sides of the tank look like their fins are falling apart and have red streaks through them. they dont show signs of the white growth yet and are acting normal. The cories seem perfectly fine though which puzzles me. I just need to know how to help them I feel so bad because I can't get to the petstore any time soon and Im really afraid they are going to die and there is nothing I can do for them. Is there any way that I can help them without meds?

There is a chance that I may be able to get to the lps today or tomorrow. Here are some pictures. What should i look for to treat this? Both fish are exhibiting the same thing but there is no white build up like on the other fish that passed. Name:  IMG_20120103_171014.jpg
