    Why is it so green?

    Also, that's a crazy amount of meds to add at once.

    Columnaris can also result in fraying of the fins.

    This fishlore post has treatment suggestions you may wish to follow: Columnaris Symptoms And Treatment

    You should probably do a large water change and then run a carbon filter to remove this medication before adding anything additional. Since you took out your carbon filter and did a 100% water change already, your nitrogen cycle is probably shot unless you have a sponge filter or something. Is this your only tank? Do you know anyone with a healthy fishtank that might lend you some filter media? I'm concerned about the additional stress that new tank syndrome will cause your fish in their already weakened state.

    The medications you listed are not intended to treat Columnaris, so if that is what you have (I can't tell from these photos, but it fits the bill) it likely won't eradicate the bacteria completely. What it might do is kill some of the bacteria, leaving you with a population of resistant bacteria to then tackle after. It's not uncommon to continue to lose fish that are too far gone for up to 48 hours after the start of treatment.
    Also, Dr. Tim's will not replace your cycle. You should continue to test water parameters frequently and expect to do water changes. Dosing Seachem Prime will help as well, if you have it.

    I'm sorry if any of that sounds bossy. You are, of course, entitled to do as you please and I am by no means an expert. Just pointing out some things I learned when my own fish was sick a couple of weeks ago and I did extensive research. Hope they'll be ok!
