 he  is  housed  in  a  tank  with  partition  giving  him  1.5  feet  of  space,  i  have  set  up  a  hospital  tank  (2.5x1x1.5  feet)
 today  but  as  its  new  i  dunno  if  i  should  move  it  dere  although  i  have  added  nitrifying  bacteria  solution  in  it  &  running  filter  of  old  tank  in  it.

 Add  non  iodised  Rock  salt.  1tbsp/5litres  of  water
 
 Hexamita  can't  survive  even  in  mild  saline  water  outside  the  fish's  body.
 
 Much  better  if  you  do  this  in  a  separate  hospital  tank/  container.  no  aquarium  decor  /  substrate.  Just  add  methylene  blue  and  metrogyl  /  flagyl.  That  will  take  care  of  even  the  opportunistic  fungi.  Maintain  the  warm  temperature.
 
 DONOT  FEED  YOUR  FISH  DURING  THE  COURSE  OF  THE  TREATMENT.
 
 Sipphon  out  the  poo  every  night  if  possible.
 
 Don't  lose  hope.  All  the  best.

 And  remove  the  filter.  It  acts  as  a  reservoir  for  reinfection.
 
 Use  intense  aeration  with  an  air  stone.
 
 Boil  the  filter  media  for  20  -  30  min,  and  sundry  before  you  use  it  again.

 Well  i  also  suffered  from  the  same  issue  last  week  with  my  2  flowerhorns  in  same  tank  as  the  disease  spreads  itself  so  both  of  them  got  infected.  My  treatment  was  as  follows  and  it  worked  in  two  days  :  
 
 1)  Changed  whole  water  and  cleaned  out  the  entire  tank,  removed  internal  filter  and  all  gravels  and  accessories  except  one  air  stone.
 2)  Filled  water  in  the  tank  poured  in  non  iodised  salt  (sendha  namak)  raised  the  temp  to  32'C.
 3)  Took  500  mg  of  flagyl  (metronidazole  tablets)  (it  comes  in  400  mg  capacity)  per  10  gallons  of  water,  crushed  it,  took  a  cup  of  warm  water  (as  metronidazole  dissolves  in  temp  above  90  F)  poured  the  tablet  powder  in  it  left  of  5-10  minutes  and  then  dissolved  them  with  a  spoon.
 4)  Poured  this  solution  in  the  tank.
 5)  Brought  in  the  fish.
 6)  After  48  hrs  done  a  50%  water  change  and  repeated  steps  3  &  4.
 7)  Always  maintain  the  temp  around  30  -  32  C  as  the  protozoa  that  causes  the  disease  cannot  resist  higher  temperatures.
 
 Second  day  onwards  white  poo  started  decreasing  and  fish  started  showing  interest  in  foods.
 For  feeding  frozen  foods  are  recomended  during  treatment.  e.g.  Blood  worms.
 
 Do  a  complete  course  of  6  doses  lasting  12  days.
 
 All  the  best.
