Default Red Tail, White on tip of gills, floating... HELP

Hey,
I have two axolotls, just over a year old. They're both in the same tank. One is fine, the other however i noticed a few days ago had white cotton wool stuff on it's tail. I put him in a separate tank and have given him 2, ten minute salt baths a day and doing 50 + % water changes every day. The water temperature is normally between 18-20 C.

Today I noticed his tail is red and he was floating on the water. His tips of his gills are white and his mouth/throat is puffy? So are his legs a little bit.

I really don't know what to do now. I have borrowed some Melafix from a friend but not sure whether to use it. Last thing I want to do is make things worse.

HELP PLEASE?? ANY IDEAS. -.-
