sorry to hear BP...what are you current water parameters? Have you added any or additional epsom salt? 1 tbsp/10 gal and increase the water temp to 80-82F This will help increase metabolism and hopefully push anything blocked through...

What are you feeding? Is there any possibility that they are malnourished? I have been thinking for a week or so that 1 pellet per fish per day is pretty minimal in terms of meeting nutritional requirements. Is there algae for them to graze on also in your tank? You mentioned them being skinny and lethargic...I feel that way when I don't get enough to eat...just a thought...

I have not added salt. The two I removed look like they are just relaxing in the ten gallon in corners. One ate and the other just sat there. I'm not sure if it's because they are alone in the tank or still sick..

I have the temp at 80 in there. And treated with metro again today.

Should I put them back with the others and add salt and heat to the whole tank?

I only fed a little for a week. Now I feed them 2 times with pellets and a snack of spirula. Algae is just starting to pop up on rocks now.

Also can I start feeding veggie wafers at anytime or do they need to be slowly introduced?

I would slowly introduce them. Crush them up even and give them in a powder form for a couple of weeks and the after that start with whole pieces.
