First off, I am really sorry this happened. The salt and erythromycin definitely seems warranted. I am not sure about Ick-x, but I am assuming you are trying to cover the fungal bases with it. I have used API Fungus Cure successfully, and really like it. I don't know how it would react to the other meds, though. Don't underestimate the power of clean water in addition.

Most importantly, I hope for a successful recovery.

E.m erythromycin in combination with salt and ick x should cover all bases if she started to eat she has a good chance at recovering after you have done a course of E.m erythromycin I would keep using aquarium salt 1 table spoon for 1 gallon it will help with Gill function and add essential electrolytes to help reduce stress if you still seeing some fungus keep treating with ick x in combination with salt it could take a couple of weeks for her  to fully recover

Day 2 was meant to say October 19 (that’s a typo) she’s still alive today on day 4. Will give you guys an update after water change, medicine change and feeding
