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?

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

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.
