I've heard that Melafix only kills certain bacteria, not all, so it may work for someone and do nothing for the next person. I've also heard that certain bacteria will actually use the organic stuff in Melafix to feed on, which can cause a bacteria bloom, which depletes oxygen in the water, leaving fish gasping for oxygen. Maybe this is what happened in your case?
