Medication for white spot should be used for duration that medicine indicates. Carbon should be removed from filter if carbon is being used. Moving fish from tank to tank will spread disease. Clamped fins could be sign that water quality is suffering. Daily ten percent to twenty percent water changes may be needed depending on levels odf toxins such as ammonia,and nitrites. You will need to add enough medication to new water that you put in the tank after a water change to make up for the water you remove. If you don't have a test kit, Then perhaps fish store where you got the fish will test the water for you. I suspect the water quality has or is deteriorating due to too many fish too soon to un-cycled tank. This leads to stress in fish which then become sick as you have observed. Do try and find a dechlorinator such as PRIME or AMQUEL+ to use for water changes. They will help detoxify ammonia, and nitrites.
Lastly,, You should consider reducing the numbers of fish you have by half, in my humble opinion.
