Here is the update for today everyone.

So I am almost certain what I see is ich, so need to setup a quarantine tank soon. First fish......REALLY? LOL

So, while it is a bummer, I should look on the positive side, as I can still enjoy my fish while he is undergoing his treatment, and I can definitely still enjoy my shrimp in the main tank. From now on I guess I will my QTing all the time when I get a new fish.

Are you going with hypo salinity or copper for the ich?
Is the clown still doing ok, he was a real looker in the picture you posted.

The Clown seems to be doing just dandy! In fact, I think he lost some spots! I know this is just the ich being deceitful, however.....

I really would like to go with copper, but certainly will not if that is not a good decision. I did copper once and hypo once, but I am going to have trouble with hypo because I lost the calibration fluid. I guess my refractometer is not like the others because mine says it needs to be calibrated with solution at 1.026 specific gravity.

I should still have my copper kit in the basement though with my other old fish stuff.......decisions!

You can calibrate the reftactometer using ro water.

Or, do what I did, go to an lfs and have them calibrate it. lol

Oh, so it really doesn't need to be calibrated using 1.026 water.....I can just use regular RO/DI?

Thanks! That would be good news! Especially since you were saying that hypo is a little easier on the fish than copper.
