Need help with sick knife fish

My brown knife fish recently developed a pretty bad case of popeye. Not sure what caused it. Everything I looked up told me just to treat it with antibiotics. I put it in a separate 30 gallon tank and began treating it regularly. The popeye hasn't seemed to go away and now his scales are blistering. There is a goldfish in with him and I thought the ammonia might have something to do with it not helping him or making him worse. I have had this fish for over 4 years and am pretty attached to it. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. Thanks
