Don't use a type of salt meant for saltwater tanks. Rock salt without any additives is best.

Ok so I found some aquarium salt. I did a 100% water change to both tanks. Did the recomended dose, and added de-chlorined water. I hope they get better!

Well "white stuff" can be different things. Can you take some pictures and describe everything super clearly? Appearance, behavior, color, is he eating/pooping that kind of stuff. Also, have you been doing the daily 100% water changes with aquarium salt so far?

The white stuff is fungus. Its cottony and stringy and taking over his whole body. Hes dying, hes just floating on his side and when I touch him he swims a little.
