Yes, whitening of the red area is a sign of the disease. Whilst colour may fade with other diseases, this should be addressed by the treatment with Esha 2000. If it isn't then you can conclude they also are infected, unfortunately.

Re: Fish illnesses #3
Yes, I would do that. But if they don't improve after the 5-day course euthanasia would be best at that point.

Re: Fish illnesses #4
ewwwww..... definitely no dead fish floating in my tank, or I've found . none floating at top or sunk on bottom so fingers crossed.

5 in total, gone via clove oil, then vodka

would it make sense to water change tomorrow, and then restart the treatment for 5 days?

Re: Fish illnesses #5
I would continue the treatment and give those others a chance as they may possibly not be infected. The protozoan that causes this is transmitted by fish eating the bodies of others that have died, so they could be OK.

You can use clove oil, available at any chemist. See this article for details: https://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-m ... y-to-euthanize-a-fish.htm

Re: Nitrite spike in 3-4 weeks of cycling #9
Keep overdosing Prime in your daily water changes until the problem resolves.

Re: DANGEROUSLY HIGH AMMONIA SPIKE #10
You need to change enough water to get the ammonia down to 0.25 or under, treat the tank with a double dose of Prime and repeat this daily until the problem resolves, which it will eventually when the cycle re-establishes. This article has more detail on dealing with ammonia/nitrite spikes: https://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... ammonia-nitrite-spike.htm
