Sorry, I know the pics aren't great, he wouldn't be still! You can see the red spots on his eye (only the left side) and the gill on that side is protruding a little. His breathing is labored, but that redness around his fins seems to have gone away. He has always had that redness in his eye, and I've been worried about it, but since he seemed healthy otherwise, I didn't figure it meant anything. Now I just think it's odd that the gill on the same side as the red eye is protruding. On the other side, his eye is clear and the gill looks shut.

*Update*
On Saturday when I got home from work, the side he was breathing from switched, then he started breathing from both gills again, and he ate some flakes! His breathing is still a bit labored, and he seemed to kinda choke on the flakes he was eating. Good news is that my 10 gal tank is now cycled!!! So I still feel like I should treat him, and I want to be sure all my fish are healthy and the 36 gal is parasite/disease free before I add new fish. Should I put all 4 fish in the 10 gal and treat for gill flukes? Is there any way to be sure the large tank is free of disease/parasites before I place fish back in it?

oooohhhh
I've read the "gill switching" too. Since it maybe gill flukes, it would be a wise choice to keep it contained in 1 tank.

Here are some good readings on gill flukes

Update!!

So I treated all 4 fish in the hospital tank with QuickCure. I read that the parasites (likely gill flukes) would die in 5 days without a host. I treated for 3 days per instructions on the bottle, and did a large water change the 4th and 5th days. After the third day, everybody looked very healthy:) They are now back in the big tank and looking happy and healthy!
