He did that when he discovered the metal in the tank, they're still pretty sick, but they're getting better. He's leaving town again tomorrow for 2 weeks, so my mom will be in charge of his fish again. I'm really hoping that nothing goes wrong and they all continue to get better.

I hope that he replaces his precious fish, my aunt was the same way, she had a goldfish for as long is i can remember (i'm 18, so maybe 15 years). Her goldfish started to get sick last year and though it was a close call, the thing is still alive. Then again, she does wierd things to animals. She had a chihuahua for 25 years before it finally died. It sounds like he's the same way with animals as she is! I hope that the other fish get well, btw i think the the live bearers are guppies. bright, colorful, livebearing... Are they?

Not sure what they are really, they stay at the top mostly, are bright reddish orange and have a black triangle shape on the back half of their bodies. I asked him once a long time ago and forgot. I guess I could ask him again. One of the ladies released her young a few days ago because she doesn't look like she's "waddling" through the water anymore. The other one, still quite big, I imagine it will be soon. With all the others sick, I wonder if the fry will have a chance - they won't get eaten as quick.

I wish your uncle luck with them and hope they recover.

Maybe the fish in question is an endler livebearer? I think their color patterns vary but I am not sure. Although it dosen;t really sound like ehat you described....

Yes, that's them, but the front part is a little more orange than this one, but that's definitely them.

My uncle's leaving this morning, and after doing a round of the medication and the aquarium salt, he's seen no improvement. He did a water change yesterday, so I guess I'll just help my mom keep an eye on them. I don't know what else to do for them at this point.

Harlequin Rasboras aren't live bearing.

Is it possible that the one danio with the bubble on its side was overfed? I have recently experienced something similar with a guppy. It developed a bump on its right side just behind the pectoral fin; unfortunately, what I initially thought was a surface bump was actually food emerging from a perforation in its side. The guppy behaved normally apart from that horror.
