Someone sent me that site. And they recommending TETRACYCLINE API which is gram positive and gram negative. And it really helped me before. I mixed it also with FUNGUS ELIMINATOR BY JUNGLE.
The think I only treated when symptoms first started.
The site is wrong but you've got the right medicine. Jungle's Fungus Clear.
Nitrofurazone/furazolidone are used to kill even flesh-eater, they are not actually an antibiotic but a mutagenic material to which single cell organisms have no autonomic defense.
Minocycline is gram negative and will work, tetracycline will simply overload the fish's kidneys in this situation. Maracyn-2.
This infection is commonly carried by bugs and live foods. If you feed live/dried foods you must run mineral level NaCL salt in a cycled tank.
You will be sterilizing his tank and the things in it when he's gone, just take the carbon out and do a full drain then add straight tap water. Hot water faucet tap water on the tools and buckets should do the trick fine, just stick em in and run them over after it gets hot. Shame we can't do that to aquariums. Using a quart of highly salted water and a brush to scrub off any deposits works too.
