MIGHT rescue an EE from Petco

The other day I was at Petco and saw a pretty EE with popeye. I alerted the cashier as I was leaving and she said she'd tell the "fish expert" that came in later. I plan on going back to check on it and see if it was treated. If not I may rescue it. I have a 1 gal tank hanging around so I may put him in there if I end up taking him home. I was curious if water change schedule changes when medicating a fish?
Thanks.

Personally, that fish needs good clean water... And even Epsom salt! Epsom salt is amazing at helping with popeye... And gentle too. I've used it for most popeye "patients" all of which were in 1 gallon quarantines. I did daily 100% water changes, re-adding the salt (pre-dissolved of course), and say it went away in 5 days... I continued it for three more days, to ensure it stayed gone!!
