Okay, so I gave him his first dose of erthromycin today, and he seems okay. He's stressed, so he's a little pale, but other than that he's doing fine. The columnaris already looks cleared up. So I'm happy about that. But I had a huge scare today...
I was giving Merlin and Fishy a salt bath before I administered more meds into their tanks, and when I was transferring Fishy from his net to his bowl, instead of going into his bowl he jumped to the floor. I freaked. I tryed to grab him as gently as I could and put him in the salt bath. He seems okay now, but he was really shaken up by it, well we both were. I was so terrified I came so freaking close to crying. Ugh. No more salt baths and transfering with nets for Fishy.

I'm glad you have a happy ending.
I had the same thing happen to me while I was changing Geshia's tank once. I was releived when I put her in her clean tank and she recovered quickly. She had lept out of her cup I contained her in while I cleaned her tank and she wiggled into a hiding place. I'm lucky when I found her because tips of her fins got dried and injured. Now I say that she used to be a crowntail. She's living a happy healty life now and I now place a deep bowl filled with water under the cups incase the fish try to jump out again.
