Question Fin rot or what.

Ok went to the LFS got 6 feedre micky mouse platys to cycle mt new 5 gal(to be hospital tank)This is where i did a real stupid thing. platys were fighting and chaseing each outher so I took the 3 f/ out and put them in 30gal tank.Got to looking at the ones in the 5gal one looks like it had a chunk taken out of his tail fin on the bottem and a little white spot on the top of the tail fin one has white on his anal finns one I put in main tank has some white on anal finns.If it is fin rot is it contageos.Moving this week end have no choice but put all in 5 gal tank so I can move 30 gal.30 gal has 3 zebra angles,5 guppys 3 prago ready to pop.1 swortzs cat,3 red wag platys,3 micky mouseplatys(the ones with the white on finns)all water prem are good.All advice is allways vary welcome And apreacited.

Well,what's done ,is done.
Not wise to buy fish if you are moving,and six fish in uncycled 5 gal tank is too much by four.
Not necessary to use fish to cycle if you already have a cycled tank such as the thirty gal?
If thirty gal isn't cycled either,,then youv'e got troubles.
Could borrow half of filter material from thirty gal if it is cycled, and place it in five gal and this would allow bacteria to establish itself in five gal, and allow you to place one or two small fish and then add a couple more at ten to fourteen day interval's.
Would move the fish in two or three bucket's of aquarium water from thirty gal with an airstone or two when you move, and use same water to partially fill the thirty gal once you get it set up at new place.(quickly)
Five gal tank is too small for much in the way of fish with exception of maybe one betta. And with numerous fish in five gal,,, ammonia which is deadly toxic to fish, will climb rapidly.
Rubber maid tubs,or bucket's,of part tank water,part dechlorinated tapwater would MAYBE keep the fish from dying from ammonia and or nitrite poisoning.
Would be sure to keep all filter material wet in aquarium water during the move.

My apologies to all, It appear's this thread has been hyjacked to the point that I became confused.
Had/have, no inclination of going through other's numerous post's to try and sort out who or what tank(s).
Will be more careful in future I promise.

Thank you. :( I still feel bad about the losses. Poor fishies.

So, my normal LFS was closed the day I went..I went to another one I had never been to. Other than it's giant live rock tank, I wasn't really impressed so I don't think I will probably go back.. although they had great deals on their tanks. I'm not allowed to have another tank. :P

The had only one DG and one Honey Gourami and their tank looked terrible.. everyone else looked fine in every other tank so I decided not to go that route. Their Bolivian Rams were very large and she said they'd been there a pretty long while and I didn't really like the way they looked. I'll probably regret it, but I decided to go with another GBR, but a Gold one this time. The coloring is so pretty I couldn't help but take another shot at keeping a ram. I've always tried keeping a pair which caused stress at spawning time for everyone else. I just got one.. I thought it was a female at first, I could've sworn I saw a pink tummy, but it could be a male... it's been getting along with my other fish fine but hasn't eaten. I'm going to try feeding bloodworms today though and see if that works! I hope it does, cause I will be out of town Thursday-Sunday so they won't be eating in the meantime!!
