That could actually be part of the problem. IME

I think it's time to consider getting a QT
up and cycled so the fish can recover unhindered. If the problem does not clear up soon, it will most likely develope a secondary infection that you may not catch in time. If I was possitive the cleaner was the issue I'd say remove it but you would be the best judge of that.
