Fry dieing rapidly

I posted awhile ago about some fry of mine that were dieing off, it seemed to be isolated at the time to a certain color of the batch. I couldnt find anything wrong with them, I treated them with a few things, but to no avail.

I then figured it was something wrong with the tank itself, maybe something had gotten into it. I moved them into a tank with some other fry I had, which I now realize was a huge mistake. The fish that were having the problem all died off, and now whatever it is, is killing the fry from the other batches. I have tried anti fungals, I have tried aquarium salt, I have tried soaking their food in Epsom salt, I heard this will cleanse them internally. I do water changes daily and the water parameters are good.

I cant find anything visibly wrong with them, then just die. They are fine, and eatting and swimming.. then you will suddenly see a couple who out of nowhere start sitting on the bottom of the tank.. and at that point, they are headed for death. Within a couple hours they start falling over, flipping around.. and then dieing.

I mean its obviously something that spreading, but I have no idea what it is nor what to do. Has anyone ever seen something like this? At this point im going to lose 3 batchs of fry cause of my mistake putting them together, Im really hopeing to save some of them due to one of the batchs mother has passed.
