Puting down one of my fish :(

I have to put down one of my red eye tetras, He is not looking good at all hes bloated and he has a lot of lifted scales and some ulcer behind his gills.

I'm thinking of putting down the rest because they are all suffering from the same diseases, All quite bloated and scales lifting.

ANY SUGGESTIONS before i go through with this

110 gallon - Planted Tank
10 gallon - Baby Livebearers/Apple Snail
10 gallon - Turtle tank
17 gallon - Goldfish/RosyRed Pond

liftid scales and bloating indicate dropsy. before you put down the poor living beings, try feeding them peas, it may help your fishs bloating. red spots in the gills means your water is not of good quality, and lacks oxygen. place multiple airstones and go get medecine for red gills its cheap. its best to try to save the poor fish than cut their lives short!!

Hi KishFeeper, do you have a test kit? If so can you post readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?
