Unhappy Injured Red Gourami

My friend gave me an injured Red Gourami it was in his Cichlids tank! It's not swimming very well I have him in my Fluval 6 gallon with a glass catfish and some neon tetras. I put some fish protector in the water I hope it helps him. He is definetly tramatized. I have Melafix should I use some of it to?

So a guy walks into a Pet Store

Guy: "I have Algae on my drift wood!"

Pet Clerk: "Take two Plecos and call me next week."

Melafix is fine, but a better description of the damage, and how he's acting will be better for a more targeted answer/solution.

I'm not into the image, but into the hobby...

Well he lays on the bottom has a wound on his side and on top of his head. He pretty beat up. Has trouble swimming I don't know if he'll make it. Breathing is good I'm hoping his body recovers. I put some of the Melafix in.

He ate breakfast this morning he gets aroused by food and will swim after it. He's doing ok but bady disabled.
