sick clown loach

Hello everyone,

I have three small clown loaches and the smallest has become sick. About three days ago, he stopped eating and then soon began to hide all the time.

It is hard for me to get a good look at him, but I believe his lower lip is swollen. No redness just enlarged and white. And mind you, only enlarged slightly.

My water quality is fine and I am going to start treating my tank with MelaFix for infection or mouth fungus..ect?

What do you guys think? Thanks adam
