This fish has looked like it had feces hanging out for a couple of days and today when I looked a large chunk is missing from around his anus/ abdomen. Is this from some weird parasite, or just oddly placed aggression?! Can I use praziquantel in a reef tank with feather dusters, coco worms, and spaghetti worms?

Praziquantel will eliminate all tube worms in the reef. Spaghetti worms will also die. This amount of die-off in your reef will cause a boost to the ammonia in your tank. Be prepared to increase water change frequency.

Activated carbon would need to be removed before dosing.

Pictures would definitely help. Is the hole on the abdominal opening? Or next to it?
