My fish frank seems very poorly.

Last week I began to notice signs of fin rot. Strange as I always keep the water at the correct temperature and clean, I also make sure he has sufficient items in the tank and nothing to harm him. He’s in the tank alone.

I started fish rot and fungus treatment and it’s one dose and repeat if necessary in 7 days. It is day 7 and his rot seems to be worse! His head slightly grey in colour rather than his usual blue and now he’s unable to swim which has just happened today. He is falling onto his side and unable to get back up and when infront of the filter he is flipping around with no control.
I have repeated the fish rot treatment today and including some swim bladder but I am unsure what to do.
Very worried :(

he is just over a year old.

1) 25 litres, Jedi the betta,2) 60 litres with 2 blue rams and 6 tetras,3) my cat!
