Yup! Best kind of help you can get :D I almost always google things before I ask any sort of question because I find that I might actually answer my own question haha. Anyway, getting off topic to the thread, hopefully scoobie will follow your help! It looked like good advice on the other thread :)

Just was thinking he was treated with two different medications for the short period of time. I am thinking if those tow white are the same and not getting bigger or spread on the body, if he is not darting or rubbing against anything , if he is not bloated and his scales not raised , pine coning when you look from the top, it good idea to start him on 2tsp/gall of aquarium salt. Pre mix and make sure it dissolved before you put it in his tank.

scoobie if you will treat him with aquarium salt pre mix 3 tsp/gall and make sure it dissolved. Do daily water changes see if it helps. Aquarium salt has antibacterial/anti fungal . It also helps to balance his electrolyte level and encourage the production of slime coat,which will in turn help protect him from infection.
Make sure you acclimate him really slowly to the new water.

If you do the aquarium salt, make sure you get the labeled aquarium salt and no other.

Slowly add in a cup full of pre disolved salt water at a time over the course of a day or two to acclimate him to the water change. Don't just put him straight into the full dose of salt water, it could make him sicker. Don't treat him for longer than 10 days with the high dose of aquarium salt.

I changed his water again today. I only added the Jungle Start Zyme, Aquarium Salt and the Tetra Aqua Safe. Well he is now laying in the bottom of the tank not moving much...so I panicked and quickly removed most of the water and replaced it and only added the Aqua Safe now he is on the top again but breathing hard. I am so upset what is wrong with him and I'm killing him?
