The nitrate is very high. I suggest you do a water change now. Try to keep the nitrates closer to 5 ppm.
This is more in the nature of a contingency planning suggestion - if they should perish (hope not!), you can freeze them and start the tank cycling for at least a short period of time. Then return them, defrosted, along with a water sample to Petco before your 30-day(?) period expires. I know that sounds gross, and I apologize, but it would at least give any replacements a better shot at surviving - if you can't save these.
