New Sick Fish...Help Define what They have and how to Help

I was at my local fish store today and happened to find out that 3 fish were in very bad shape and were brought to the store to help... The store has no room so I agreed to try to help by taking them ... Now I was told that they were just neglected for feeding but that doesn't look like the case ... I attached some pictures of the fish as I hope someone can tell me what they have and what I can do to help them get better... I would love to eventually put them all in my display tank please help...

Koran angel has loss of color on his face and is turning white... Rest of body nice color

Sailfin tang lost his tail fin as well as I think some of his top fin... His face is also white

Lemondrop angel is just hiding on bottom corner of tank wont swim around or come out looks like he has white dot on top of his head

I was told they were eating black worms which he said was helping them that they looked way worse before .... Any help would be appreciated

Not sure but I would think the Koran and Sailfin have HLLE ( head lateral line erosion). Most believe it comes from a poor diet, and I've also read stray voltage may have something to do with it too.
I'm not sure what you can do for them, I find it hard to believe they looked worse and were still alive.
Good luck with them, someone else will know better than me, how to help them.
Hope this helps!

Try to buy vitamins to add to their food. See if that helps. The best thing at this point in clean water and quality vitamin enriched food

Put them in a QT and add Nitrofurazone (antibacterial).
