I Think One Of My Guys Is Dying What can / should I do?

I have no clue what to do. Should I take him out? Is there a humane way to send him on his way? I'm pretty sure he won't survive, and I just don't want the others getting sick from him. Please help.

man im so sorry to hear that
i know that pain. if you feel like trying to rehab him the best thing you could do is keep him isolated. but im not sure what all is wrong so im not sure what advice to give you. wait for some others to add some input who are more experienced with sick p's. as far as putting him outta his misery ive heard a few things over the years, all debatable. if i was you...just try to hope for the best. let nature take its course....keep us updated in the mean time.

Edit - I don't think they will eat him for now, I just fed them a lot of tilapia yesterday in hopes that they wouldn't eat him.

evenmore than just the water man make sure u get as much solid waste out as possible.. if you got a gravel cleaner or something that would be ideal

I'm running a FX5 and they have been in there for a year and a half or more. I would add more bio media if the nitrate level wasn't so high already.

what kind of filter do you have? i cant see it being the cause unless there is a huge piece of dead fish or something rotting in there.
