Not sure if I can fix my Favourite Silver Dollar..Advice needed please

Hi,

I am currently on day 6 of a 10 day course of Sterazin, as treatment for Gill Flukes. I have definitely seen a vast improvement in the wellbeing of all inhabitants as far as the Gill Flukes go.

That was, until last night when I discovered to my horror that my favourite biggest Silver Dollar has sustained an injury to his mouth. I would more than likely put my money on it being from a piece of rock or driftwood, as this has happened before.

In the past I just added salt and the wound healed very quickly however, this time I am treating with the Sterazin and the bottle states very clearly to not mix it with any other additives.

Do I have any options here? I still have 2 more doses of the Sterazin to go, the final dose being on Saturday. Will my SD risk becoming bacterial (ie infection present) in this time or, will he be ok?

If it were me, i'd isolate him, continue treatment with the med you're using, and keep him in pristine water after that with a little AQ salt to help

Good luck.
