I'm sorry about your Platy :(

Any way you could get a picture of your Molly? How long has he been not eating/inactive?

I can't upload pictures on this site don't know hou to do it with a cellphone. It is a day and a half now that he is inactive before that when he swam it looked like he was crazy or somthing. He darted from side too side I thought he only did that too impress the female molly. And then I saw that he was loosing weight very fast

I was afraid of that (not that the alternative would be much better). A 40 liter tank is approximately 10 gallons (US) - given the bioload you have in your fish list I would expect to have some problems...especially given just twice monthly water changes. You may want to take a moment and review the "fish profiles" with regards to the species you have to help you better understand my concern(s). Have you tested your water since noticing the issues starting with your fish being in distress? If so, what are the levels of nitrate, nitrite and ammonia?

I do not have a testing kit for that.but I have a type of medisyne that's called clear water. I thought maybe I should use that in my tank?
