Sounds good! I will give it a try. Do a 100% water change, add aq salt. Then every day I do another 100% and add more aq salt, correct? How many days would you recommend, the full 10 days?

Correct, if it's hard for you to measure how much salt to use, get a one gallon jug, premix with AQ salt (remember to add water conditioner too). And pour it into your 2.5 gallon.

Do it until you see signs of improvement, and yeah don't continue this for more than 10 days. If this doesn't work, I wouldn't suggest using AQ salt for awhile.

Yup, but in my opinion, just doing 70% changes once a week is fine. If you want to do the salt treatment- put him in a smaller container (1 gal-ish) and do the treatments in that- it's a lot easier then emptying out a 2.5 gal everyday ;)
Make sure you do 100% water changes while during treatment. You don't have to do a full 10 days, but you can. Just don't go over that.
