unfortunately, that sounds like fish TB and would need treated with kanaplex. If you're in the UK, Interpet #9 is similiar if you can't find kanaplex. Did the other 2 die of the same thing?

There's a chance it could be ulcers or tumors. If it's ulcers, Maracyn Plus or Melafix might help him out.

Do you have a picture of him that you could post?

It would be a judgement call.. fish TB is overall not supposed to be very contagious and even kanaplex is a longshot in treating it, it's almost 100% fatal. You could treat the fish with kanaplex but it would be hard on their systems and they may not have fish TB.

Did the fish that died all come from the same source?
