Paraguard by Seachem should work based on the video below. Make sure it's brook though instead of a fungus or other bacteria, or parasite infection. Here's a vid. The info about medication is toward the middle of it.

ok, I did read about brook and it said it usually starts from the head and there's mucus in the gills.. I haven't seen any mucus and so far it's only in that area under his fin... I posted in the unhealthy section in the case that someone could identify it for me. I'll definitely watch this video though. Thanks!!

also, if this would help rule anything out, today the black OC has been swimming in short bursts and the floating around, letting the current take him wherever. He's vertical most of the time. And he'll sink from time to time.

I was losing my fish the same way as you described. 2-4 days of floating and they die. You need to take fish out even your other clown and put them in QT

ah ok, well i couldn't say i didn't see it coming.. This is the second fish I've bought from this store that as has a disease, but the only other store here that have fish is pet smart. I have an empty 20 gallon next to my 55 that I was gonna use for a sump. It might have to be a quarantine though.

Clowns and angelfish. They, in addition to tangs, are susceptible to brook. My only surviving fish was a leopard wrasse who was traded to LFS.
