The other point of note is I am upgrading my awful sea clone skimmer to a reef octopus hob 90...I turned off the sea clone for a few days as I was tired of hearing it run. Have since set it back up...maybe lowered the oxygen levels In the tank? Was off about 2 days....reef octopus will he here Thursday.

Possibly. It looks like you have a power head pointed towards the surface though.....if there is a decent amount of turbulence, I think you should be ok with oxygen levels.

Just strange he gets stuck a month ago and appears fine then gets stuck again. I guess he could have been bullied and stressed so got sucked in and got hurt while being sucked by the filter for who knows how long. Still hanging in there and swimming around once in a while...not sure how long to give him like this. Ever seen a fish recover?

Recovery can be easy, simply making sure that the parameters in the tank are good and that there isn't bullying going on.

IMO, a healthy fish should 1- not get sucked into a filter, and 2- be able to pull himself off.
