Past few days i realised a couple of fishes in my display tank is having bacterial infection and I'm not able to catch any of them out.

I don't really have any coral in my tank except few snails and discosoma.

Those infected fish is not eating now, may I know can I dose kanaplex directly into the tank for treatment?

If yes, do I need to turn off my skimmer?

Is there any other thing that I need to take note of?

I’ve never dosed directly into the display, but if I did, I would try to by soaking food first, along with Seachem Focus (bonding agent). You mentioned your fish aren’t eating. I would try soaking in garlic as well, and possibly turning off power heads to make it easier for them to eat.

This approach would limit exposure to the rest of the tank. Good luck.

They are hiding in the rock work and not coming it at all
