First off, you can fill the tank higher so they have more gallons. ammonia and nitrite need to be at 0 if your tank is properly cycled. If you didnt cycle it, then there is your problem. uncycled tanks open up the possibility of many diseases and fish death. You could have fin rot or a type of fungus, but I cant tell from the pics.

How hard and how acidic is your water?
Also, ammonia, nitrites and nitrates?
Did you use a water conditioner?
