I hadn't read this about Melafix.  

If you can't change your ways, change your water -- a lot of it, say
50% or more.  Repeat daily until the culprit in the water is suitably
diluted.  Needless to say, don't add more medicines to tanks to which
they will do harm.  Maintain nutrients when doing water changes.
