fish losing color

I need his HELP

It turns out that today my fish are extremely rare

It seemed that they have stain of chlorine, they have white spots is not itch since the size is very big .

The surgeon hepatus is the most afected but it's not the only one , the flame hawk also seems to be bleached and the lawnmower is extremely weak ( thin)

Already check all the parameters and the only thing that was high , were the nitrates but i realized a water change of 80 lts
my system is 280 lts aprox.

I need the help from all you it is something that have never seen

Your fish are stressed and potentially malnourished. Consider using a vitamin supplement such as Vitachem or Selcon. What are you feeding these fish? These fish should be fed Mysis, Formula one, Formula two and the like regularly.

What are your water parameters exactly (salt, ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, temp etc.)?

What type of filtration do you utilize?

You mention chlorine but I am unclear as to what you're talking about. Please be more clear. Looking at the above (i.e., food, water quality, filtration) usually provides the answer to problems such as the ones you describe.
