Unhappy Almost dead Dwarf Gourami, PLEASE HELP!

First of all, sorry for not being on here for a while, my life's been good but busy.

My poor little dwarf gourami, Neo got ich about a week after I got him from the pet store. I raised the temp to 88 in the tank and he seemed to get better. Today though, I found him lying almost flat on the ground. His ich is back He only moved when I tried to get him with the net. I've got him in a one gallon heated QT ATM. He'll go after food only if I put it literally on his lip. I've got a ~3 gallon dose of SeaChem Kanaplex in there.
More info:

Tank: 30 gallon, planted. QT'd in a 1 gallon.
Params: Main tank: 0 QT: 0
Tankmates: 6 tiger barbs in the main tank. They haven't shown any signs of any troubles either time Neo got sick.

The last time I added fish was about 3 weeks ago. Should I also add salt or Tetracycline? I'm trying to find some clove oil if things go even more south....

5 gallon
One betta
10 gallon
Two bettas, divided
Three mystery snails
20 gallon
Seven female bettas
Four oto cats
Five juvenile female guppies
One goldfish (temporary)
29 gallon
One dwarf gourami
Six tiger barbs

27 fish....

How long did you heat the tank?
I must say im afraid the 1g QT tank will be to stressful. A DG needs a bigger qt tank. I dont qt in less then 10g . Was the heat treatment done in the main tank..or the 1g?
