they look a bit like platys to me,but then i've never
been great on IDing fish,however whatever they are,they don't look
healthy to me,their fins are clamped.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I got some blue salt from shop the guy said it will help. I did put some salt in there. Hope it will work. One of the aquarium owner suggested to put anti bacterial tablet so i put that tablet too. I have a small size Aquarium so there is no small water heater for that on shop :( it’s really disappointing. I had 3 pregnant guppy fish before the died because of ICH too. Then for long time my Aquarium was empty now when I started with new fish again it happened again. I have 2 sucker Fish 2 Red Fish Dont know their Name and 2 Gourami. Sucker and Red fish are infected by ICH but gouramis looks normal to me. Just waiting for medication to take effect. Don’t know how long do I have to wait to see any changes. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks

Aquarium
They look like female swordtails to me. Being 3 inches long also suggest swordtails rather than platies. I don't think platies get that big, do they? But yeah, they don't look too happy.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

OK Looks like they are swordtail female. Both of them are female. I found these pics of swordtails on net.

Both of them has babies and both of them are infected by ICH :( I wanted to breed some fish in my tank for the first time and now this!! I have no choice left but to take my own life. I had a good life. I loved my Bike its Yamaha Fazer :D. Good Bye ICH Goodbye Everybody.
