UK crisis

Can anyone provide advice on suitable treatments for skinny disease that are available in the UK? Maracide and the other drugs often mentioned in this forum don't seem to be available on this side of the pond, and none of the proprietary medicines seem to work. After the death of a new kubotai from SD, I now have a 4 inch clown starting to look a bit our of condition, so I really need some advice. If I go to a vet, what antibiotic do I ask for? What's the dose? And will it kill the filter bacteria? Or should I try ad catch the fish and treat it in a quarantine tank? Advice will be gratefully appreciated.
