What is this disease?

I dont thinks its ich or brooklynella. My new percula clown had it for a week then after alot of water changes and freshwater dip it went away. Im not sure if the dip helped but he's alot better, so i did something right. He didnt eat and was breathing rapidly. Now my royal gramma has it and doing te same thing, rapid breathing and not attempting to come out and eat. I havents seen it since this morning, afraid its dead somewhere. But i googled a pic and it looks spot on with what i saw on the perc and what i saw on my gramma. Starting its on topic, because i need some help quick.. So please anyone let me know something. The other 2 pics are of my fish.

Do some research on lateral line disease. See if that is it.
Check all your water parameters. Ammonia, Salinity, Temp, Nitrite, Nitrate, PH etc. Also make sure to feed quality food.

I cant really decide if thats it either, i didnt see any pits on any of my fish face. Cant find any other pics that look exactly like the lines on my fish. But just in case, ill change more water.. That is how u get rid of the disease u posted.

Not just, change water, but keep the water conditions pristine and make sure when you do change the water that the temp, salinity and PH match the tank water. What are they eating and what are the parameters which I listed above. That is a starting point.

My new premixed water has to match the same exact ph too?

Honestly, I don't test that. But if you are doing a big water change, it doesn't hurt to make sure the PH is close.
