Mesmer and lifeguard

Day 1/6 of mesmer's jungle lifeguard treatment because he has itch and something else unidentified, both in the early stages so fingers crossed. Instructions are as follows: "remove filter carbon, add 1 tab per day per 5 gallons. Treat for 5 days at 24 hour intervals. For best result after 5 day treatment wait another 24 hours before returning carbon filter and make a 25% water change"
Now Mesmer has been in a 2.5 g bowl since I got him so no filter, I decided to add an air stone to keep things moving (he's mooching off Archie's air pump)
I have never medicated a fish before so we'll see how this goes.

Thank you
So far the tablet doesn't seem to be melting but it's only been 15 minutes

Wow I'm very impressed, already I see the brown disappearing but he is also "panting" (breathing with his mouth open a bit more than usual) I hope that doesn't persist

So far all good. He isn't breathing heavy anymore. Also he has always been a "bad hunter" as I remember someone else calling it once, he had issues getting the floating pellets and tended to miss and have to swim down for them and find them in the gravel. Well this morning he ate 4/5 pellets off the top of the water line with no problem. Leads me to believe maybe that brown stuff that was in his eyelids was messing with his vision. Yay happy fishy!

The brown has cleared up pretty well but what does it mean when the ends of his fins are turning red? They also seem a bit more rigid (stiff) than before
