You could use this food for a pre-made option-

There's several metronidazole options for water dosing, but I use SeaChem MetroPlex.

This is somewhere to start. It's difficult to make any kind of diagnosis from the information we have here. Step up water changes, dose a little bit of the Stress Coat daily until things get better, and good luck.

Some reading on Hexamita -
Metroplex can also be used to medicate food if you soak it in a solution of it for half an hour. You dont have to use Focus.
