plz help tank illness

Ok well my tank has a disease i can't identify. It's already claimed 2 fish (1 royal gramma, and 1 mandarin goby) looks like its moved to my 2 clowns. anyway fish eat and show no signs other than scales look a bit flaky and white. Then they are dead the next day. the clowns are showing a different symptom thats a red to pinkish spot that seems to start at the first white line by the head not sure what to make of it plz help. also already treating tank with API Melafix to see if it helps.

Check your Salinity, ph and Nitrates. It sounds like bad water to me. Try and make a 20-30% water change and then do it again in a few days.

Did a water param check and everything is fine> Nothings high at all. salinity is at 1.023 not bad no one else has died so far but now both clowns are showing the red/pinkish spot.
