How long have you had the fish? What is your water testing at? I really can't see the pics but you said they look like sores. Google dwarf gourami disease and see if it is similar to what your fish have.

My dwarf had the same thing. We battled it for months with salt and anti bacterial medication but he passed. The closest I could get to diagnosis was HITH or lateral line disease.

Its hard to tell from the pics but they do resemble ulcers. If all of your fish can handle salt, I would work on gradually increasing the salinity. I am not sure where you reside (country) so I am not sure what you have access to meds-wise or if you have a qt tank for treatment.

they do look like ulcers too and a lil bit of fin rot..i got some maracye 2 to treat. im guessing my nitrates have played a factor in this being over 80ppm. I did a 80% change.. I have a snail so ill have to put him in my 29gal. I dont really have access to a qt
