    Tank size? What are your water parameters? Did you move him for treatment? Is there enough surface aggitation to provide plenty of oxygenation?

    65 gallon I had some marmosa balls to help with oxygenation. Not as much agitation anymore about to get air stone at store now. Will do parameters after I get air stone. I did not move them for treatment treating in same tank

    If possible, I would get an air stone now. When medicating fish, you need to supply plenty of oxygenation. My guess is that that is the problem combined with stress from the medication.

    Why are you treating him in the main tank?

    Take him out, put him in a plastic quarantine bin. What are you using as your bacterial med?
