We just found you guys, hello and help!!

@ weeks ago we moved our 2 clowns up from 15G to 55G, along with their tankmates(Alb pleco and cory). No one seemed ill before the move in either tank. Same water params:
82F, pH 6.8-7.0, soft, identical substrate, Amm, NO2& NO3 all none to minimal.
Changes:
From unplanted to amazon sword planted, and some extra caves, and angels, mollies, another plec and cory, few neons and danios.

Symptoms: cloudy eyes, deteriorating fins(edged in white) and barbels. lethargic, fast respiration. not eating.
We love our little brats and Margaret the albino plec (they would perch on her back) is looking bad. As we write more tankmates are losing their fins...
We are losing our minds as well, cuz last week everybody was having babies
