Stress coat will help the slime coat for the angel. I helped rescue a tomato clown it took us nearly an hour and a half to get the rock broken so we could free it, without killing it. The fish looked pretty bad and all my friend did was put some stress coat in the tank. He doesn't have a hospital tank so he had to keep it in his tank. Now all you can see is a few scares up around the head.

50% water change daily in the qt tank will help, but if the animals is severely battered or has actual lesions you can add nitrofurazone or other anti-bacterial medication.
