injured clown loach

2 of my loaches ended up in my Emperor filter! Removed them both and thought they were o.k. Now 2 days later, one of the loaches appears to have been attacked. His skin has sloughed off from the start of the tail fin back. His whole tail fin is almost completely gone. Don't know if that's from the filter or an attack or a combination of both (being in filter stressed him out, ect..) I have separated him from the other fish in a breeding net and have poured some stress coat over him but don't know what else to do. He can't swim as he has very little tail fin. I'm afraid he's in pain but if he can recover I want to help him. He's my favorite fish. Any suggestions are welcome!! Thanks
