I got some blue salt from shop the guy said it will help. I did put some salt in there. Hope it will work. One of the aquarium owner suggested to put anti bacterial tablet so i put that tablet too. I have a small size Aquarium so there is no small water heater for that on shop :( it’s really disappointing. I had 3 pregnant guppy fish before the died because of ICH too. Then for long time my Aquarium was empty now when I started with new fish again it happened again. I have 2 sucker Fish 2 Red Fish Dont know their Name and 2 Gourami. Sucker and Red fish are infected by ICH but gouramis looks normal to me. Just waiting for medication to take effect. Don’t know how long do I have to wait to see any changes. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks

They look like female swordtails to me. Being 3 inches long also suggest swordtails rather than platies. I don't think platies get that big, do they? But yeah, they don't look too happy.

OK Looks like they are swordtail female. Both of them are female. I found these pics of swordtails on net.

Thanks for your reply guyz. Last night I put some anti-bacterial medicine and salt. And cleaned my whole tank with hot water after moving my fish somewhere else. Then new water in Tank with medicine and salt. I have uploaded a new video of my tank. Now I am waiting how they react. Guyz please do comment. Tell me what do you think.
