I tried to watch the video but it says it's private---can you change the permissions to public?

It's usually recommended to do water changes weekly, 50% is good. How long has the tank been set up? What other fish are in there? Is it cycled? What are the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate readings? WHat do you feed and how often? Some of these answers might help pinpoint the issue.

I'm also going to move this to Unhealthy fish.

I have san fran bay brand bloodworms.
Brine shrimp

Algae wafers
Tropical flakes
And liquid invertebrate food from dr fosters and Smith
All on recommended feeding amounts ecept have been feed bloodworms more often because the baby barbs eat them a lot more
