I have definitely applied methelyne blue directly to wounds a time or two, but never antibiotics. For applying metheleyne blue directly to wounds I use either a q-tip or draw the meth blue from bottle with one of those plastic thingy's use in API testers to draw water from aquarium to be tested ( name?). I then poor the meds on wound. Have a towel handy that you dont care about because this will stain. The fish also needs to be on something soft in case flops around.
The antibiotics applied directly to wound?-- an excellent idea. However, I would worry about dosage. How much would you use? And wouldn't dosage amount be determined by the type used? You start to get into the areas where a veterinarian would be needed to determine dosage of particular antibiotic to be safe for the fish treating.
