Fin Rot or Ich?

65 gallon tank with three new clown loaches in it. I've had these guys in a 20 gallon for about 3 years and just moved them to their new digs over the weekend. Noticed some fin and tail rot so added melafix at 1/2 dose every other day planning to continue for 2 weeks. No ich spots, but they're still not very active and their tails and fins are still kind of slimy and tattered looking with white tissuey stuff hanging off. Can I up the melafix? I'm anticipating ich as part of the stress of moving, and have used rid-ich at 1/2 dose in the past successfully. Help!
