I'm by no means an illness expert so you might want to wait for a second opinion.
It sounds like your fish either contracted something from the rainbows or developed an illness due to stress.
As far as treatment goes, it's difficult to say 'treat with this' because we don't really know what we're treating for, possibly an internal parasite.
Personally, I would likely treat again with Seachem Metroplex (metronidazole).
Perform a water change, vacuum and remove any carbon filtration prior to medicating.
