been great on IDing fish,however whatever they are,they don't look
healthy to me,their fins are clamped.

Thanks for you quick reply mate. They are about 3 inch long. They are infected by white spot So called ICH I guess. Don't know what to do now :(

Not an expert but u could try rasing the temperature slowly. And salt helps i think some1 else can verify

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

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.
