PLEASE HELP!

Angel fish unwell, help pls. Researched everything and dont have a clue :(

Hi I'm new here. I was given 4 tropical fish
about a year ago of a friend of the family.
Long story short 3 of them died :(. I have one Angel fish
left and I'm not sure he/she is a girl or boy. I'm not sure
how many gallons the tank is. I have an air pump and a heater
that I keep at 28c , he/she has gravel and one fake plant. No
filter. He/she is fed flakes in the morning and half a bloodworm cube
shared with my baby terrapin at night. He/she was fine until around a month ago when he started
rubbing against his air pump. I cleaned him out (which I've recently
learned that I shouldn't do) but I had no choice since I don't
have a filter and there was eggs all over the air pump. I researched it
and found out that if they was opaque then they was dead. (So I'm guessing
the fish is a female? Anyway since then she/he has developed
a bloated tummy and is still rubbing on the air pump and seems
to panic most of the day. I use fresh start to get rid of the chlorine every
time I clean him/her out. I tried methleyne blue(didn't work) its the 6th day of trying
Anti-white spot and on the 4th day I did a 30% water change and gave
it a second dose. He seems to be getting worse, I'm running out of
options. Please help. I absoloutley love him/her to bits. He's a fighter. But I don't think he can
fight anymore :-( ?:cry:

Tanking a look at the picture, I'm guessing the tank is far too small for an angel fish. This is stressing it out leaving it susceptible to disease. You probably have toxic levels of ammonia and Nitrites as well. Do you have a test kit at all? Can you provide measurements for the tank? Height, length and width? We can figure out the size from that.

Stop feeding the bloodworms for now. They should only be feed once or twice a week anyhow.

If you've look on my other post about my
angel fish I've posted the measurements and the
Ph nitrate and ammonia levels :-)
