I can't say yes or no as I've not used this product before. Since the fish seems to not be too distressed by the infection, I'd say try it BUT, keep a close eye on it. If you see any more deterioration or the fuzz falls off then reappears, your med is not working and time to switch to something stronger.
As for your other fish, if this is not Lymphocystis, your other fish should be fine as this is a localized infection. (Once again
) BUT the fungus spores are in your system so should another fish become injured, it's likely that this will happen again. On a whole, however, this is not a contagous situation.
