Loki isn't really as dark as the photos might be showing up on some of your monitors. I looked at this thread on a computer at school today and it was much much darker than how my laptop's monitor displays it. But, he still is a very black fish, that's for sure. He has a tiny sheen of bronze on his belly. Loki is constantly at the front looking straight at my and wiggling around for food. Chiba doesn't see as well as Loki, so he doesn't beg as much. He just follows Loki around sometimes. I think he learned that if he follows Loki around, he gets food since he is begging all the time :lol1

As for how they are doing, there are improvements. After an entire month of >.3ppm salt concentration, there were still a number of white spots on Chiba's dorsal fin. I concluded that the salt wasn't doing enough to help. So a week ago I started them on a copper treatment, and right now the spots are totally gone! I'll be maintaining the copper in the tank until this Friday, and hopefully when I take the copper out the spots stay gone. I have to have the UV off during the copper treatment, because the UV light breaks bonds in the compound and creates a more toxic form of copper.

Maho has been kind of on-and-off. A couple weeks ago she was bottom sitting a lot and retaining a lot of water, so I put her in a 10g QT with epsom. After about a week of that, she was much better, so I put her back in the main tank. Now she is bottom sitting again, but not retaining water this time. I suspect that the copper is just stressing her a little, but I'm not totally sure. After the copper comes out on Friday, we'll see how she does. But Serafina is now in the 10g QT with epsom and heat because she is dropsied pretty bad :( She was alright for the longest time, but I know she was the weakest because she's been a bottom-sitter since day 1. She even dropsied while on Baytril med food, so I'm not holding out a lot of hope for her sadly. And her pineconing is pretty dramatic.

And I'm still unsure about Grindle. If you remember, he started to bloat and dropsy slightly a number of weeks ago at the start of this fiasco, and now he is still just slightly prickly behind his gills. The prickliness hasn't gone away, but he's acting like he feels fine. Time will tell.

Aw thanks Edith :) I'm looking forward to having healthy fish again, hopefully it will be soon.

These photos aren't the greatest, but I just wanted to add these photos of Maho and Grindle from yesterday too so you guys can see that they're still hanging in there too! I don't have a recent photo of Serafina, but she's not looking good, so... :(
