Anyway redgolen bro. Just maintain the water cond. Dont try to put too much chemical. If not will worsen the fish cond.

IMO

Sorry to see that.. Well, stay calm, monitor the fish and do regular WC.
Sudden change of too much chemicals also not very advisable.
If it can cure, it will sure need absolute patience.. It can't be overturn overnight.

Best regards..

Bro,

If I am to be you, I will forsake all craps of whatever bacteria and get the Aro cure first.

U need:
1. Salt
2. Hester
3. Anti-bacteria medication
4. Regular water change till it recovered.
