I have 2 clown fish in a QT tank that have gone through 14 days of seachem cupramine and the 6 days of seachem MetroPlex and focus soaked in there food for the last 6 days. The one isn’t showing any signs of anything wrong and the other one has stringy poop and his lower jaw is whitish. Not sure what it is and was wondering if I should try a different med for this fish. I have attached a pic below. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Jon

Has the clown been eating o.k.?

If so, you could consider an antibiotic bath. The feces issue and the chin are likely unrelated. You've already treated for internal protozoans, so the antibiotic would be geared towards the chin lesion, as well as internal bacteria.

Metroplex + Focus is REALLY difficult to dose properly, almost impossible really:

Thank you for the response. As of now he has been eating ok. What antibiotic would you recommend for bath?

Picking an antibiotic is pretty much just a wild guess, Maracyn 2, Furan 2 and Neoplex are all commonly suggested.
