came to feed the lil fatties this afternoon and to my shock the these two were acting up. they both look like theyre pineconing, though their mother is a pearlscale. the smaller one look like it has internal bleeding from one side and the larger one was in a little accident with the fliter last week, her/his tail fin was only a little shredded. i'm going to test the water in a bit. The tank iss a 20g long, only with three fry and 2 snails. also they have been pooping a bit weird its not brown and how they usually poop. I feed them frozen brineshrimp and a few NSL/hakari pellets here and there.

How old are these little cuties? I question whether frozen brine shrimp are an appropriate staple food.  They are a good treat for fish eating a balanced pellet or gel food as a staple.

 

Do you usually have an ammonia reading?

 

These fish look perfectly healthy to me.  I see no sign of pineconing.  We need pictures from above to determine that.
