Help diagnose my Gourami?!
My Golden Gourami who's been in our tank for a few weeks is getting ill. Since he's been there a few other fish have died, one angelfish a day after arrival, 2 dwarf gouramis from unknown causes a week after arrival, and a bala shark who died after getting swim bladder and he'd been in tank for few years now. Gourami started out with what I assume is fin rot as he was the alpha in the tank, and now has red spots all over. He's less aggressive now and i'll attach some photos too. He's been on some anti-fungal and internal bacteria meds that don't seem to be working. They were very old though. Any help?

Welcome to the forum.
we'll need some background info to help figure out what exactly is going on.
Water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate)
Other fish in the tank-if so, what are they (and amount)
How long has your tank been up and running? Could you explain how you cycled it?
