ok, since the move they have not really been very happy at all. bailey has little spots on his head (they dont look red or anything, just raised dots) and tia has a white tuft under her arm which im not sure if shes caught on something and its just flesh hanging off or its a fungal infection. also, they both have little white bits on their gills. their water quality was a little high in ammonia but i think its sorted now. ill test it tonight. is there anything i can do in the meantime to help them? salt dip maybe?
any help would be great thanks Click the image to open in full size.

salt bath (You can find the recipe on caudate culture, I believe). If it is a fungal infection, you want to treat as early as possible. If they've got white bits in their gills, I'd bet on an infection of something. Is Bailey leucistic? and the dots brown/black? That would be normal.

ok, ammonia is 0 so thats good. bailey is a wildtype. the dots are his normal skin colour it sort of looks like hives or sandpaper.
