update injured sucker fish

i want to thank everyone for there fast response to my situation. i did go out yesturday imediately to my lps and i got melafix and started him on a treatment. and sorry i never did state what think happened to him so ill tell u now.

about 1 month ago stupid me made a stupid decision and i brought home 2 more fish for my tank so lets see i have a 55 gallon fw and i have 2 silver dollars, 2 ciklids, 1 sucker fish, and 2 new oscars so a total of 7 fish. well after the fish where in the tank i thought to myself i dont think my filter can handle (fluval 305) all these fish so i went back to the lps and bought a marianeland hang on filter for the tank so ifigured more is better then not enough. well that filter that hangs on the back the pickup for it has 2 pieces a top and a bottom and its square. the day i noticed his injury the bottom of the pickup was off of the filter. im guessing because ive seen my sucker fish before when he decides he want to change location he moves and i mean he moves anything and everything out of his way. so i think that he slammed his nose right in t0o that filter and thats how he got injured. its all my fault

one question hes now in a qt tank and i set it up like this. got another 55gallon tank, i took that hangon filter put it on the qt tank, i took about 20 gallons of water out of the original tank. could i be killing him because of the qt tank really wasnt ever cycled?

Maybe, but he is also injured. Do you know how to cycle and read the levels? I am sure you do, but if you don't I suggest getting a liquid test kit to see if you are cycled.

The water does not help the cycle because the good bacteria resides on the glass and in the filter. Just as long as you change the water the water won't hurt him as long as the toxics stay down. put some live plants and caves. I hope your fish gets better

If he was a healthy fish[well fed] he could probably go about 3 more days. Also feed him at night because most plecos are nocturnal.
