Help w new long tailed ryukin goldfish

Hello, I have had goldfish for almost 3 years, and I recently decided to get another to add to tank. Got a 3 inch long tailed ryukin goldfish. Set up in a 15 gallon quarentine tub set up with a bio wheel penguin 200 filter, an air stone, with an old hideaway and fake plant I wouldn't mind tossing if they became contaminated with anything, just wanted to keep his stress down by having something to hide. Also put suggested 1 tablespoon of aquarium salt per 5 gallons when set up aquarium. One week after getting him, my new goldfish started showing classic ich symptoms, white spots. Now, I have lucked out and never had to deal with ich before, but started treating with super ick cure and gradually raised the temperature to 78. Ammonia and nitrates are at 0. Ph is at 7.5 I followed the directions dose twice 48 hours apart then do a 25% water change/bottom vacuum. But he has just gotten worse and looking worse. He was eating up until yesterday, the last day of treatment. I have read a lot that treatment needs to be repeated but I am afraid it's doing more harm than good, and I have heard of people mistaking other things for ich so I am hoping for a second opinion from someone who has more knowledge than me. I did the gravel shovel and water change this am, but am weary of starting another dose. Am going to post 1 pic from when he first started showing symptoms, 1 halfway thru treatment, and 1 from today. He looks progressively worse in each one. Would really appreciate help, he's an awesome little fish I don't want to lose him. Thank u so much
