Sick tilefish

Hi all, I recently purchased five blue-headed tile fish and a week later one of them developed reddish raised scales on his side. He also has some tiny little white specs on those areas as well. Doesnít exactly look like but I donít know. From what Iíve read it looks like he has some kind of a bacterial infection so I isolated him from the main tank and put him in quarantine. I am currently treating with Furan 2 and have a heater and air stone in there with him.

My question is could I use chloroquine phosphate at the same time with the Furan 2? I havenít been able to find anything online about using these two drugs together.

Your advice would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Yes I believe you can use the two together. Keep an eye out you might be dealing with uronema in which case it's a fast killer. Cp has been known to treat it if treatment started early enough.
