As ayala said too much water change will stress him aswell, either stick with the 100% daily...or do that every other day with 50% change in between.

Also picking a small piece of your hornwork would help the rid ammonia aswell. Since hornwort is fast growing and doesnt need alot of light it'll be just fine...it's a very hardy plant.
F.M.L.... I just literally added him back to the tank... XD
He still has a little bit of gravel, and plenty of place for the BB to grow... I'm going to snip some of my hornwort and put it in there, though I hope the salt doesn't kill it first!

I just got a good look at Bo's side, and it's a raised bump with some white sticking around the edges. Columnaris doesn't do that, does it?
It's like a little node protruding from his side... a bump of sorts. His behavior is still the same, so...

Aquarium salt and double dose of API stress coat is what he's swimming with, right now.

Lol nvm dont worry too much about the bb, i just realized since ur tanks isnt filtered then it's gonna take forever for them to reestablish anyway.

Also because hronwort stays at the very top of the water, it isnt exposed to as high concentrations of salt as most would think. Sure there is still salt, but its very hardy and should be able to stay alive - ive got personal experience with this...done it before lol.

And he could be swealling from his body fighting the infection. Ussually espom salt helps with that, but i wouldnt add anything more...could stress him.

Up to you, i'd say a branch big enough for him to rest on (like a hammock lol) but small enough that there's still enough surface space for him to breath and swimm freely.
