What do you mean by culligan water? If you mean water that's been run through a filter, it's just a carbon filter and yes it will still have chlorine in it.

If you have them in water that is free of chlorine (like bottled water) but initially did a change with tap water and caused chlorine damage to the gill membranes it's probably too late. Putting them in clean water after the fact is like giving you a bottle of spring water after drinking battery acid, the damage is already done.

well, if you loose any, you can always call a taxidermist. you have to treat the water with a conditioner and make sure it's the same temp or near the same if you don't have a themometer. And do not change any more than 25% of your water in one day, this could affect the ph and the temp of the water and make the fish go into shock. Hope this helps, sorry for your fish.
