When they poop, what does it look like?
Their poop looked long and white (sometimes almost transparent).

Now, since they're not eating... I don't see their poop anymore.

Since you still show nitrites in your readings I think that you are not through with your cycle. Do pwc everyother day until your nitrites show 0 and are stable.

White poop can be indicitive of an internal infection. I don't have my book at home, but if you can get your hands on a book called, The Handbook of Fish Diseases, by Dieter Untergasser, that will help, unless someone else comes along and can give specific meds.
I would also work on PWCs to get the water parameters as good as possible as stated above.

Thanks very much guys. Unfortunately nothing seems to be working. They have become very weak. I don't thing they stand a chance.

Length of time is no indication of whether or not a tank has completed it's nitrogen cycle. The only test is to test the water and get the 0 readings and then check again to be sure it's stable and not just a dip.

I also noticed that the faeces are thin, long and translucent. Is this a sign of digestive desease?
