New magnifica with puffy mouth - treatment required?

Picked up a new magnifica and it has its mouth puffy and out. It doesn't deflate or looks otherwise sick. I wonder if I should treat anyway...









Here a video of it with the green gigantea and the surviving Indo percula.



The gigantea has an issue with its foot (curled up and doesn't attach) and just holds itself with its verrucae. Otherwise, it's been solid for 3 weeks now and not deflated once. I wonder if Cipro treatment could fix the foot or if I better leave it alone for now.

This was the magnifica at the store:

Well, it partially deflated after lights went off so I will start treatment tomorrow.
Now I just need to figure out where to put the clown and the pair of crabs...

Looked pretty good in the morning under the nightly moonlight, but I will still treat it as precautionary measure.

That looks a lot better than the other one that they had. I may go back and pick it up and try to save it. Decisions, decisions.

If it looks not really good you may get an even better price. And from what I could see of it you should be able to treat it successfully.

Both, mag and gig, are together in treatment now.
The mag was looking pretty funky in the evening and there was no doubt that it needed treatment.
Here a video of both before I moved them to the treatment tank:



The percula and the crab pair had to move to another tank.

Let's see how the magnifica looks in the morning.

Mouth looks tight and closed. Good sign. I don't mind when they're partially deflated. I think it's their way of expelling the pathogen from certain part of the oral disc. One that I treated would deflate sections in a clockwise pattern.

Joe let me know that another one came in today (the other one was sold). I'm planning to pick it up tomorrow if all goes well.

I'm pretty sure that this one should pull through. So far it never really deflated.
But there is one spot that looks like it might be an injury. Well, let's see. It's definitely the least of my my worries right now.

This afternoon:



Seems there isn't much bad stuff to expel. They don't mess up the water. Usually, if an anemone is really sick, the water gets milky within a day or two. That only stops when they get better. So it looks like the infection isn't really severe.

Though there is this contracted spot that might be an injury:

Not really much to report on the anemones. The puffy mouth of the magnifica is gone, no deflating, and even that knoty spot seems to be gone.

But when I checked this evening the exiled percula had jumped into the breeder box I keep the anemone shrimp pair in while the anemones are in treatment. I guess he was missing his buddies. The other option would be that the tiny regal scared him to jump.
