I am assuming you have tested your water and it is ok? You may want to buy some Maracyn and Maracyn-two. The two meds can be used together and are broad-spectrum antibiotics. If you choose to take this route, I would do a 50% water change before adding the meds, than follow the directions on the package. Hope you fish get better!

get your water tested for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and ph levels. try doing a 15% water change and see if that helps

Water changes are the only way to remove nitrates. You want to keep nirates under 40ppm. What reading did you get?

hi
as already stated,water changes will be your friend now !
add the dechlorinator to the new water,befor you add it to the tank,also if possible warm the water
as well,so the fish that are left are not shoked with the temperature differance.

Get ready to get your hands wet! You are going to have to do a lot of big water changes to lower those nitrates. Maybe, daily water changes of 50% or more a day. I would not add any meds with nitrates that high. Getting the water back in check may fix the problem.
