I would do a fresh water dip for 5 min max to rule out flukes. there are some strains of flukes that are prazi resistant so hopefully thats not what you are dealing with.
If nothing shows up in the fw dip, then you might be dealing with ich which could be in its gills.
5 days in hypo should treat for flukes as well. for ich it would need to be 30 days. you will need a properly calibrated refractometer for hypo and need to make sure that the levels don't change due to evaporation.
Also what are your water param for the qt? ammonia in check?
