a bigger display tank.
Keeping a fish in quarantine does not mean that sending it to ICU. You need to observe and see if this fish is at all infected. Gill flukes are common parasite. Ideally we should keep a new fish for atleast 10-12 days till it is habituated to taking pellets from keeper.

Secondly, you added way too much fish in way too much small tank within a small period of time.
Your bio-crew was ready to handle introduction of 2 fishes max. You added 4.

was there any visible signs of discomfort, like redenning of gills or something like cysts on body etc.
