Great! Thanks so much! I will start doing water changes. Do you think twice a day, 30% is fine? So 60% daily, just separated to make it a bit less stressful. Will also do extra vacuuming and maintenance.
No. Do one big water change and gravel clean each day.
Do a 75% water change and gravel clean the substrate every day for a week. The water changes and gravel cleaning will reduce the number of disease organisms in the water and provide a cleaner environment for the fish to recover in.
Make sure any new water is free of chlorine/ chloramine before it is added to the tank.

If you do a 25% water change you leave behind 75% of the bad stuff in the water.
If you do a 50% water change you leave behind 50% of the bad stuff in the water.
If you do a 75% water change you leave behind 25% of the bad stuff in the water.
