I was thinking it was from such a low salinity since the beginning. Try raising it back up slowly.

I've had a couple fish die like that as well! Do you see of it's panting? Or breathing very hard? If so we are thinking a gill parasite I'm currently treating my 55 with coppersafe trying to Make sure no one else gets it

It's definitely breathing really quickly.

I don't even want to go look anymore though

Just looked again, pretty much the same but the fish has kinda stiffened up, still breathing and waving its fins once in a while but not moving at all.

Honestly after my 3rd died I just took him out o water he isn't turning back
Now and is suffering sorry for him to suffer but I had a foxface, blond tang and a week ago coral beauty who all got this gill parasite that killed them in less then 24hrs it scared me and puzzled me because everyone else seemed to be fine which was weird. Good thing he is in the quarantine tank cause I'm in a load of mess for it happening in the display tank maybe try Melafix and the natural herbals in the quarantine tank it really helped my hippos tang fin grow back and I had good success with it the only downside is because it's natural it takes a little while to work.

And Melafix won't kill gill parasites you'll need chemicals for that

Should I take the fish out? I can't get anything until tomorrow and even then they don't open until 10am... this sucks

Is he belly up? Or sideways stiff as a board?

Still right side up but getting stiffer looking, and whiter, looks like it can only move its fins and even that looks tough
