Please Help! Dying Parrot Fish

Hi, my mom is a teacher and has had 2 parrot cichlids in a fish tank in her room for about 9 years now. She got them when they were about 2 or 3 years old. Well, we move them to our house every summer so we can take care of them. 4 days ago, we moved them from our house to the school. I even took bucket of cycled water from my 65 gallon to fill it up and everything was going fine. However, when my mom got to school today, both we lying on their sides on the bottom and not very active. They are in a 30 gallon. Are they just at the end of their life or are they sick or something? They are still alive but they are very weak.

I looked it up, and they can live from 5 to 15 years. But u should still test your parameters. If u don't have a test kit u can go to a local fish store and they usually test for free
