Are their tails pointed?
That is the sign of a fungal infection.

Hmmm, parasite maybe, try this
"Rid ich plus" by kordon
It will work for both parasites and bacterial/fungal problems.

15 drops per gallon along with fresh clean water and heat they should be O.K.

I wouldnt treat with random medications. Its best to avoid medications unless you know what you're treating. Many of them are pretty harsh on fish.

What are the parameters of the tank they are in?
