Convict injured

One of my juvenile female convicts was severely injured by the others last night. Because I have no other tank to put her in, she's currently in a floating breeding tank. She is alive, but she is in SEVERE condition.

She has moved around, she is breathing and has eaten some. As you can see her eye is probably done for, and she's got a bad bruise as well as loss of color and a lot of fin damage. What can I do to help her recover?

There will be a reason behind why she got attacked if it were me I'd find out why it happened as I wouldn't want it to happen again

I switched their food recently, so they probably didn't recognize it as food and went after the smallest as food.

Dose with melafix, that will help her injury heal, can you put her into a dish or something to do this, or dose the whole tank, won't hurt other fish. Some antibiotics would be good. She needs treatment ASAP What are you going to do with her if she heals? You won't be able to put her into the tank again, they will kill her next time.
