what are the other symptoms? behavioral symptons - are these fish eating? Any other external signs of disease? What are your water parameters? How often do you do water changes?

i change water weekly, ph of 6.6 and kh of 2. I add baking soda every water change. nitrate around 10 ppm. and the fish are always swimming towards the water current. Some have fins that turn white. They eat only a little

baking soda? why baking soda?

Ok, well it sounds like whatever it is - is fungal and not bacterial, but it's hard to say. I would start on a fungal medicine and keep a close eye on them. If you have a QT tank I would put them in there for treatment. You don't have a pic do you?
