tang with flukes

Hello, I have a purple tang which I suspect has flukes.
I've read most of this thread and it has so much great information about flukes http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1260067

My DT has been setup almost a year, and has 1 ocellaris which has been in there for about 2 months. The ocellaris was QT'd for 2 months, treated with prazipro and cupramine.

I have a QT setup, but against my better judgement I added the tang directly to the DT on 5/9. (it had been at the LFS since Feb and I had been observing it every week).

The tang twitches slightly every few minutes. I have not witnessed rub against anything, only twitch while swimming.
This leads me to suspect flukes. I did a water change on 5/10 and treated the tank with prazipro on 5/11.

I've noticed the tang still twitching. From what I've read it will take at least 48 hours for the prazi to have any results, so I may be jumping the gun here...

I would love your opinions about when/if I should do a FW dip.

Thanks!
