ok so i took out the exsiting water and placed in the water with the epsom salt and declorinator... the water temp. is at 75 degrees farenheit and the tank is only half full so he can get air... the good thing is he is going up for air at least

Keep your temp at 75F for now and you can also turn the light off to help with stress, I would continue the 100% daily water changes with the pre-mixed Epsom salt for 10 days, on day 3 of treatment offer him half his normal feeding and remove any uneaten food and then continue to offer half feeding every 2 days until treatment is completed.
Once he has recovered I would start a regular water change schedule of 50% twice a week if you have a filter and without a filter make one of the 50% a 100% and keep the temp in the 78-80F.
