Fluke?

Just lost a fish and now my black tang is showing signs. Bad. Was treating cupramine in the hospital and the other fish still died. Could never really keep the copper at .5 but was always above .3. So ran carbon to clear it out and started prazipro. Did a freshwater dip for 13 mins, way to stressful for me not the fish. Doesn't seems one came off. Thought I was facing ich but the stringyness of it seems to point to flukes. Best pics I could get. They are mainly in his fins. What do you guys think?

Trust me. I didn't want to but after reading 50 things and fw dip says 99% effective in all, I am desperate. He never showed signs of stress. He is still eating but is shy. He has always been shy though. He is about 8 yrs old now.

I too agree that FW dips do no good. It stresses the fish out to the point they might not make it. Never seen a FW dip do any good and in my experience many of the times they die.
