      Villain is pretty manic, has shoved on flops with QK overcards, bluffs 9/10 etc. insta-snap calls and raises constantly. how do you even deal with this type of player.

      Preflop: Raise to 4BB. You are missing out on a lot of value by not raising larger. He is calling you here with 60-80% of hands given his wide VPIP (and he will probably defend even wider from BB since he is getting even better pot odds)

      Postflop: Nothing else for you to do besides inducing and calling down. as you said he is an aggro monkey and I don't think you have any other option. Reraising just shuts down his bluffs. Here you basically got super unlucky.

      Against this guy I would raise $0.3-$0.4 here.

      On the flop I like your bet here.
      Considering the reads you have on him I'd call down here as well.

      This time he had a hand but there's nothing you can do actually.
