Sorry I missed this thread... you should have IM'd me in Yahoo when this started. After reading all of the posts here, I can tell you what is wrong with the guppys. It's a disease similar to neon disease... and it's not treatable and it's always fatal... and also contageous! The only way to beat it is to remove and euthanize the affected fish the second you see it starting to appear.

As for the goldfish, the stress of moving them was enough to cause the ich problem. I'm sorry to hear that my fav of your fish is so sick. What is the temp on the tank? Can you at least get an air stone in there? It sounds like oxygen deprivation among other things. That would explain the laying on the bottom so much and also the red veining in the fins. They may also have a bacterial infection, but Little Fizz was right to tell you to be careful with meds... they can't handle many.

IM me in Yahoo and let me know the latest, or give me a call after 10pm tonight... we'll talk it all thru and get you and your fish back to where they should be!
