I rescued two of these guys. One is large than the other. Owner said fish are 12 years old...I think he might have exaggerated. Please help me identify them as soon as possible so I can adjust my water appropriately.

I'd say either Puntius lateristriga (spanner barb or T-barb) or Puntius kuchingensis (false spanner barb).
You can see both here:
Personally I think Puntius lateristriga is the more likely of the two. It does indeed look rather old. I have never seem them with a body shape quite like that.
