Looks like ich.. Good news is it looks like you already have him in QT. Are you treating the tank yet?

It looks like ich it is good that you have him in qt in my experience hawkfish do not handle copper well. For this fishes treatment I would say herbtana but, What are the tank parameters? How long has the tank been up and running? and what other fish are in the tank?

Thanks. Yes, the both flame hawk are in the QT. I have not started any treatment yet, my medication on hand are quite limited, i just have Prazipro, Seachem Paragard and the Metroplex only. Shall I use Prazipro?

Prazipro is for internal diseases I say you try to find some Herbtana or another ich med they are at all pet stores Petco, Petsmart, Your local LFS

The fishes (2 flame hawk) are in QT, the size is just 10L. The water is from the DT and I have also put some of the Sera Siporax from the DT to QT for filtration. I just checked the NO3, it's 25ppm, same as the DT.

Metroplex will do the trick, just make sure to follow the instructions. I’d also get a bottle of methylene blue but do that treatment separately and after the metro.

Prazipro is a great choice i would recommend lots of water changes from an established tank free from ich.

Herbtana isn't going to cure a fish of anything, if it's in a quarantine I would treat ich with either H202 (new and not as tested as I would like so I might avoid), copper, or chloroquine phosphate.

Yes, that appears to be ich.
