looks like septicemia. you won't be able to save him because it kills too fast. i would however, get some meds to treat the tank to make sure it doesn't spread.

I would remove the fish. and euthanize it so to not infect any tank mates. and head to the petstore with 2 bucks and get a replacement.
Sadly, I have remove the fish from the tank and put it down. Hopefully it does not spread to other fish.

My tank is a planted tank and what kind of medication can be recommanded?

I saw another Zebra with similar color discoloration in one side of the body. (As above picture) However, it appears to be eating and fast swimming. I couldn't get it out from the 500GL.

Should I drain the tank and take it out by force?
