First attempt at a rescue

Picked this guy up today knowing he was in bad shape but deserved a shot at living. You can see the stuff growing on his fins and his eyes are cloudy. He does move when I walk up to his tank and he will swim up to get air

His water temp in his 2.5gal QT is 76.

I put Quick Cure in his water and have been reading other posts on sick fish. Thinking I should go buy some Fungus Cure and/or Furan.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

Cannot see the picture, but AQ salt, and daily water changes are best for any sick fishy's, and Stress Coat, if his eyes are cloudy, as one of my fishy's was, (went away) and all they really need is clean, warm water, and a lil Aquarium salt, temp needs to be 79-80 for healing to begin.

Don't be surprised if he does loose some of his fins. That looks like some serious fungus. Start with 1 tsp/gal of salt and in 12 or 24 hours (whenever you do his next WC) bump him up to 2 tsp/gal just to be safe.
