Cardinal Tetra with possible Popeye?

The other day I discovered one of my 15 Cardinals was acting odd. He was the only one not swimming with the school which isn't normal. As soon as I walk up to the tank they always group up. He wasn't swimming around and his red stripe was very faded. His eyes looked large compared to the others and he was breathing heavy. I immediately setup a 10g hospital tank and I'm treating him with Mardel Copper Safe. The temp is around 78*F which is the same temperature as the 75g he came from. Is there anything more I can do for him? Should I raise the temp a bit more? I'm not using the filter as of now to reduce stress from swimming hard. Should I aerate the tank with a stone and keep the filter off? Any other suggestions are welcome.

I'm no expert, but some aquarium salt should help him heal. It makes life easier all around for fish.
