    When trying to 'save' fish from bad water conditions, it's not advisable to put them in a new tank. I know you're trying to help them and that's commendable, but as mentioned, unfortunately their immune system may have already been severely compromised. There might not be too much you can do to save them unfortunately. Pineconing is usually a bacterial symptom, and sounds like there was possibly a internal parasite or (worms) in the tank.

    I would use Kanaplex (Kanamycin) over Metro. You can dose Kanaplex right into the water since it has a special ingredient added to be water soluable. Paraguard is also another med good for different kinds of parasites and is added to the water as well.

    I'm pretty sure the two meds can be combined, but not 100% sure.

    *correction, 30g should be ok for a single adult fancy. Not for a common or a sarrassa comet those get massive.
    The fish entire wieight is about 12 g so that's dosent make any sense.... and there is only one fish.. I have 2 gram of the pure powder, and I can mix with food, the question is how to do it and how much powder to put? there are no instruction for that the only instruction are for bath therapy
