[*]Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus?- the red cap came with ich :(

[*]Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.?-the two calico's are bottom sitting since last night:( ,But the red cap has no more ich and is swimming happily all over the tank :)

As stated above this is my 30L established tank with my new babies I was mostly worried about the red cap because he had ich and was so tiny and skinny but he seems to be doing very well,however the two calico's are bottom sitting since yesterday and I'm wondering if maybe its the salt??I'm going to do a large w/c in just a bit and wont re up the salt to .03 and see if that helps,any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)
