How do you tell if they have mites, or if it's mites, or what a skin condition may be? I'm worried about Niko

Maybe you should separate them to make sure nothing spreads then put them back together when they are all OK health wise.
I considered this but I don't have a second usable cage ATM. The vet called me back a little bit ago and told me to treat Henry with the leftover Bactrim from Niko's abscess. I have a second store bought cage, but it is actually at my friends right now but I will see about getting it back
It is pretty unusual to treat a fungal infection with an antibiotic, unless there was a secondary skin infection from scratching. It seems that it would be better to use the anti-fungal cream. Also, unless you have enough of the antibiotic for at least 10 days, you'll need to get more from the vet.
Sometimes Bactrim doesn't knock out an URI, so keep a close eye on him.
The weights seem a tiny bit below average, but that may be because you aren't sure of exactly how old they are (my boys were both 585g at exactly 3 months and 760, 730 at exactly 4 months) or it may be because of bad nutrition before they came into your care (my boys mother was under my care for a majority of her pregnancy).
Your boy's stomach sore looks fairly deep and may be more than just ringworm, it definitely needs to be seen by a vet as soon as you can get him in.
