Update: More info needed...

Hi, I have posted a few times a couple of days now.
Anyhow, I have three quarantined bettas.
1. One is lethargic, no other signs of distress or disease.
2. One has a tail with slightly darkened edges.
3. One has a couple slotches on it's 'head'. Red steaks in fins. and tail has a bit of ruggedness on ends.

I am assumed the second and third fish have fin rot. This just showed up in these two.

I have been giving salt baths.
The 2nd fish hasn't been doing good with the salt baths, he gets lethargic, pale and acts stressed after them, swims on side a bit afterward. So I stopped his for now.

I am not sure what I should be doing for all of these fish. It seems like I am taking care of them around the clock and its getting exhausting as they aren't getting much better.
Any help would be great.

Could you take some pictures? D:

Also, what are the conditions of their tanks? Like tank size, temperature, pH, Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate levels, water hardness, etc. They're all helpful things that will help diagnose what your fish may have.

You can take a small water sample to your nearest PetSmart and they usually do free water tests.

But what is your tank size and the temperature of your tank? And are you keeping them all in the same tank? If they are sick, they should each be put in their own separate hospital tank. Water temperature should also be kept at around 80 degrees F at all times to promote good health.

tank test

everything is normal in the tank now. apparently the two have fin rot and the one has a bacterial infection but should be okay. we'll see if the petshop guy is right.
