Definitely no ammonia. Is there something else I can use to treat for parasites or will the CP work on them? I would think the fresh water dip would have taken care of the flukes?
Freshwater dip will dislodge some but will not fully treat for them. Prazi pro or general cure is my method of choice for flukes. I generally use general cure as it kills a wider variety of pathogens.

Do you know if you can add Prazi or General Cure to the CP and be safe? Or is that a question for @Humblefish ? Or @melypr1985

Will kanaplex do well for treating Popeye? I believe it is due to injury. I introduced 2 wrasses from QT last Monday and they were getting harrased pretty constant after releasing from the acclimation box. The pink face wrasse is doing good and holding his own but the pink margin never could get settled in. After the third day it managed to jump into the overflow box and my wife and I had tried netting him out a couple times with no luck. Today I was going to siphon him out but he apparently made his way to the sump on his own last night or this morning. After retrieving from the sump I noticed one of his eyes popped out and a little bit of tail fin missing (looks to have been from the other fish nipping). I took him back to QT to treat and get ready for reintroduction.

Will kanaplex do the job?
Should I medicate at all or just leave it to heal on its own?
I have focus to bind the kanaplex to food or would it be best to treat the water for this type of injury?
He is pretty skittish so pics are pretty hard to get but here is what I was able to capture:

My maroon clown has one of its spine cheeks swollen/inflated (kind of). Is this a disease? Should I treat or is it just an injury? Your opinions

Can I treat with PraziPro, Metroplex, and Cupramine together? I have a 10 gallon QT, I’m a little confused on the instructions. Do I monitor copper the 30 days and add Cupramine as needed? Or is it just those few doses at the beginning? Do WC with Cupramine treated saltwater tested at .5? I’m scared to over or under dose!

This wasn't there just yesterday! The anal and tail fins look like they're rotting away?
They're stuck in a temporary tank until the big one is ready. Everything was looking good for a few months now, then I notice his fins...
Could someone please tell me what this looks like to them so I may look into it further?
Thank you.

My clownfish has one cloudy/swollen eye! Swimming and eating normally, what should I do?

In the tank for over a month now after month quarantine and prophylactic treatments, parameters are all on point, and everything else is doing great

Any idea what this red spot on my Clown may be? I just noticed it yesterday, I test weekly for ammonia/nitrite/nitrate/alkalinity/pH/calcium/magnesium/phosphate/copper/silicates and everything is right where it should be. I have a couple aptasia I need to nuke but other than that nothing aggressive or with the ability to sting
