HELP! Sick weather loach!!!

Have a small (3.5 inches) golden weather loach (Baby) that has been acting different the past few days, hanging out in plants, not eating like usual. I attributed this to the modesta (temporary tank companion) being very territoral and Baby trying to stay out of his way. This morning I noticed a small part of Baby's dorsal fin was missing, he now has a white patch on him close to the head and going down his side 1/4 inch wide and 3/4 inch long. Looks much like we do when we have had our hands in water for too long and are water logged. This area is not fluffy or fuzzy looking. I immediately transfered him to a hospital tank with salt about 1 tblsp per 5 gallons of water. What else should I do???
