Betta tb! Help!

I have a 3 yr old beta and just purchased a baby male from Petsmart. Everything was fine for a week. Suddenly, the new guy started to vomit, act confused, and now has a u curved back, and can barely move to even get air! I removed him from the tank, and today my old Beta is acting crazy and confused, will not eat, and is not himself. They have NO other symptoms!
I am terrified because the tank sits on my kitchen counter and my 6 yr old feeds them!!!!!

What do I do!

It's not fish TB, the chances of the fish actually contracting that is very very low.

It's normal Baby Betta behavior, sounds like he's getting a little constipated and his swim bladder is being pushed against which can cause floating and the spine curve; it's not permanent. He's also not vomiting, the food you're feeding him is too big, cut it down to size for him.

Have you read through this? If not, it's worth your while:

Thanks but both my adult and new one died the day after this post

They both looked fine too.
I assume the new one was sick and infected my older one, since they shared a tank for 3 day's.
