Melafix for a cure?

I've lost one fish to gill disease and now another has come down with signs of it(red gills no swelling yet). I have some melafix on hand and was wondering if will cure this as it is an antibacterial?

thanks Ian

P.S Water parameters are
Ammo 0
nitrites 0
nitrates 5ppm

IMO anything that has caused you to actually lose a fish,is nothing to use Melafix on.It does help regrow nipped fins,smells nice,but as a medication,I'm not convinced.

If this is truly Gill disease try using Maracyn-Two as this is a Bacterial infection
I may be mistaken but I believe Melafix is to help with cuts and scrapes.

Sounds kindof like fungus. IMO for most normal fish dieseases, melafix has a good chance of being able to treat it well. Its a very universal medication.
