Thumbs down Somethings wrong with crush!

So the past few days crush has just not been himself. He slowly started losing energy and his appetite. He is now laying the bottom of his tank, gasping for air. His body looks fine, no discoloration or clamped fins. However hes just barely starting to get stress stripes again. He occasionally comes up for air, but when he does he sinks right back down.
Yesterday he ate his food, but he spit it back out a few times. Now he isnt eating anything.
I put some aquarium salt into his tank. His water perimeters are fine, and his tank is at 75 degrees. Unfortuately i cannot raise the temp, my heater stays at a constant temperature.

When you say water parameters fine exactly what are they? When was your last water change? You may want to use Epsom salt rather than Aq salt, if its a swim bladder or bloating issue Aq salt will not help & could make it worse. How long have you had him?

Thanks, ive had him for almost a year, he was a rescue. When ifirst got him he had extremely bad sbd and fin rot. My last water change was yesterday, i changed about 20%.
I use the strips so they dont tell exactly, but they say everythings in the safe range. Here they are:
Nitrate- 0-20
Nitrite- 0
Hardness- 120
Alkalinity- 120
Ph- 6.8
