Please help sick fish ?

I have 2 or three chocolate gouramis left one the largest female is brooding. She is beige hasn't eaten and has that huge lump in her throat. This must have happened right away after being acclimated to a low ph.I thimk i lost three out of five, at least i can't find them but i haven't been able to find them.I believe they carried a parasetic and/or bacterial infection because so many died after perfect acclimation ( like some mated) and i noticed some irratic behavior in a perfect honey i added, he was moving up and down the side wall and his eyes look a bit bulged. SINCE i'm down to 2 orr 3 i wan't to save the fry what should i use ? Kordon has a line of organics to treat fry ick but i can't find anything for bacterial/fungal.

Well no advice could have helped well lets just say. I finally seem the parasite on the last one, the brooding female. I was incredibly dissapointed. She spit her babies out and died, my god it was sad.As was i. I did manage to save my honey. Now i know what abnormal behavior that is secondary to disease in fish looks like. So onto the future and i think i'll have another go of it sooner or later.
