Goldfish trouble

Goldfish trouble after moving fish Goldfish trouble first began a few weeks ago when I moved fish from 2 gallon to 5 gallon set up. The new set up has a filtering system, and there is gravel on the bottom. I feed two or three times a day. The fish are each close to 2 1/2" from head to tail. There's no top of the tank. It's a hand me down aquarium and the lid if cracked so I trashed it. I haven't medicated because I don't know what's wrong with the fish. Goldfish trouble I add little salt to the fresh water every time I clean the aquarium, but just a sprinkle. I heard this keeps the water from going bad. I clean the entire aquarium once a month adding fresh water with water treatment that removes chlorine. Trouble with goldfish The fish were happy in the 2 gallon aquarium, but I knew they were growing and needed more space. They were okay for the first week, and now they're quiet and won't eat or swim around. It looks like their colors are fading if that helps. I've tried to take photos but they're blurry and you can't really see the fish very well Both fish are called shubunkins. They're really beautiful, and I'm greatly attached to them, so any help I can get would be much appreciated. I don't have a test kit. Not sure what to get or what I need in that department.

Sick Ryukin floating Sick ryukin has been floating off and on for over a month. He has 2-3 good days then 1-2 days when he hangs at the surface, dorsal out of the water, looking miserable, with limp fins. I think it's digestion related. He doesn't appear to be pooping much at all. Cure sick goldfish I've tried: tonics: astralagus, mint, ginger, aloe. oiling: I oiled him a few times and the last time, about 2 weeks ago, he flipped upside down for about 8-9 hours. I thought I had killed him. When he flipped over, I saw bloody areas under the skin on his abdomen. I threw him into an antibiotic tub thinking he was septic. The blood cleared up, I cleared him and put him back into the tank. It was while he was in the tub that I noticed very little pooping going on. He eats and not much comes out. I'm feeding him only gel food - tiny bits at a time so as not to overload him. 4 times/day. Goldfish bobbing surface I just ordered the floating remedy. Maybe I should have chosen digestive therapy? What do you recommend? Same 48 gal tank, now with 3 fish. Parameters are good. I have tons of algae now, both in the scrubber and on the tank walls. Temp 71-73. Goldfish floating surface
