Are the measurements you gave including the tail or not?  What is the active ingredient in eSHa?  Did you get both fish from the same source and at the same time?

measurements are not including the tail but I can't find their last measurements from a month ago. 

main active ingredient in eSHa 2000 is Ethacridine lactate, copper sulphate and proflavine hemisulphate that is all the ingredients

both fish were from the same source but bought at different times and were in separate QT tanks but had to move them together because the place where I had one of the tanks i couldn't keep the tank there but what is happening with Chibi and her fins started before moving her.

How long have you been treating with the eSHa?  I would not use any copper products with GF.  With 2 fish in a 7 gallon tank, I'd be doing 100% daily WCs.  When you were treating with salt, what percentage and for how long?

I was treating with eSHa for 3 days and the salt was at 0.1%. I will do 100% water changes daily from now on but it has been quite hard this week to do that as I have had 10 pieces of homework for some reason :/

I would do another WC ASAP to remove the eSHA and concentrate on keeping the water pristine.  That's most likely the main problem here . .. .

The water change I did a couple of hours ago I didn't add anything but prime :)

Nothing. Please add nothing but water and maaaaybe some salt. Not more than a teaspoon per gallon or .1% unless the main people helping you advise it.
