Just put him in a QT tank, add Aquarium/Epsom Salt, and then acclimate him and slowly release him. Do 100% daily changes for 10 days if using Aquarium Salt or 100% daily changes for 12-14 days if Epsom. I'm sorry he's sick. :\

I think Epsom is recommended for parasites.

But am not sure of dosages. Good luck!

Epsom Salt is for internal parasites and other internal problems. If this is the case, Epsom Salt is best. But for external parasites such as Ich or Velvet, Aquarium Salt is best. The dosage is 1 teaspoon per gallon for A Salt and 1-3 teaspoons per gallon for E Salt.
