My sorority is dying!

Help! Aurora's got finrot, she's pineconing, having trouble swimming, she's not eating, she might have velvet, she's sick. I've got her in a tubberware with 2 tsps of epsom salt per gallon with 100% once daily,, and I've been treating for a few days.

Foxy's pineconing, and I think she's got dropsy, she can't swim, her fins have been getting thin, she's sunk, I had to take her out of the tank just now when I saw her. She's in a cup with a tiny bit of water so she's submerged, but still able to get to air. She was in the main tank with the other two. I treating the main tank with 2tsps of epsom salt per gallon with 50% water changes daily.

Jaffa is healing from finrot, and I don't know, but she might have velvet. but she's acting healthy, she's in the main tank. Phoebe is doing fine in the main tank.

D: I noticed finrot three, maybe four days ago, nothing much and I started treating for that, then aurora got sick, then I put her in QT (tubberware floating in tank) and then she got sicker, and things have been getting worse and worse and worse and now foxy's sick, and I don't know why. OldFishLady's been helping me, but this is getting really bad, and I think medicine is the only way now.... do you know if there's a medicine that can cure everything?

I would treat with a combination of Maracyn 1 and Maracyn 2, this will treat a wide variety of both gram negative and gram positive bacteria. Just follow the directions on the packaging. I have had a lot of success using Maracyn 1&2 in the past.

Cost isn't an issue, though :S I won't be able to get to petsmart for a while... and Foxy and Aurora are giving up. Aurora isn't coming up for air, and Foxy can't swim, and I can't let them be in misery too much longer, so I'll have to humanely euthanize them. I guess when I get it I'll only be treating two girls, though it'll still be useful

I'm so sorry they're not doing well. But you're right, it's not fair to let them suffer!
