If you can keep him in quarantine while you do nightly baths of Potassium Permanganate for 30 minutes, that should help him, double dose and don't let the bath water touch the normal quarantine water.

I cant quarantine him. Is there something i can dose or treat the whole tank with? Diseases are not my best thing.

Why not? You can float a small tank in the normal tank for the time being.

doesn't have to be a tank, can be any container that hasn't touched soap. A kritter keeper or a storage bin from walmart.

But i also have no way to oxygenate the water. How many baths would i have to do? Is what happened to him life threatening?

Yes, it is life threatening eventually. It may take time for it to actually turn into a body infection, hard to say though since each fish is different. He'll be fine in a temporary situation, it's more important that you get rid of any infection he may have.

You can go one of two ways, you can use Furan-2 or KanaPlex (Kanamycin) and follow the directions or you can do the Potassium Permanganate (Jungle's Clear Water) baths nightly in a separate container. Either one is fine to do and I can instruct further on each whichever you chose.
