Fish 3- 2 week old fry. Bent spine/tail. As of 11/25 (picture 1)

Fish 4- month old fry. Female. Sitting in one place, fins a bit clamped. No other symptoms. She ate today, poop is normal.

Do i have a hexamita infection?! I need help figuring out whats going on so i can prevent more fish loss. I read that soft water may be causing it, and that they wont show a hole in their head.
