Well this is my first time a red has got beat up pretty bad his face is banged up two pretty thick scratches. His one nostrial is damaged. and one of his fins were bitten pretty much to the knub.

yes

and melafix, it wont hurt your p's, just add carbon when you are done medicating.

Stress coat is something good to add as well just because it has aloe vera in it.
Lower temp as well because it sounds like you have a bit of aggression

carbon into your filter when your fish are healed. If you are running carbon in your filter now, then the melifix wont work because the carbon will take it out.

Not meaning to act like your a retard, But carbon is the black Pebbles, little rocks or carbon black pad. If that is in your filters, take it out while you medicate.

Medicating=carbon out of filter

done or not medicating= Carbon back in, The truth is I never have carbon in my filter. I find it pretty much useless if you keep your parameters and water changes up.

you can add salt now, dont add the melifix until the black pad is Out of your filters, or else it will be like wasting money and melafix and we all no that is not the cheapest

lower temp to b4 you turn the lights off and go to bed because you might wake up to a half eaten P

I would say 78.5-79*F

yeha you might wanna turn the temp up a little higher than 75 so you dont lose your bacteria. Yes the black pad in your filter is your carbon, make sure that is out while you have meds in the tank
