First thing is to turn around the pots so they can get out of sight of each other.

Then get the water conditions good.
Are those filters from another tank?

He is making the same mistake as you. The fish are being poisoned by their wastes that new filters cannot process and the effect is similar to a human suffering from smoke inhalation.

Moving water won't help but part of the sponge from the filter you moved over in your FH tank may be enough to help these fish. He too will need to start the daily water changes.

The partition/seperator stays but they need to be able to not see each other.
