Sorry to read about / see this.
Keeping water quality in optimum condition (0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, <20 nitrates) will be crucial. This may mean daily water changes of anything between 20-50%. Monitor the water quality at least twice daily for the next week/s. Your water test results ought to guide you as to what amount to change and the frequency.
Administer the Melafix after a water change, so as not to dilute it by a water change later in the day.
If there's no change in the next few days, let us know, and we'll advise further about whether to try a different/stronger medication.
I'm struggling to focus on the lumps - can you describe them in as much detail as possible or maybe get a clearer photo, please?
