White slime on a clown would usually indicate Brooklynella (but bot 100%). I would read up on it and see if it holds true for your fish. SW formalin baths are the best treatment if so....

The parasite interfers with proper gill function, the slimey coating will hover about anywhere on the body.

Film or little tufts of cotton like substances? Any resemblance to a sheen or dusting of gold flecks?

Merged the two topics. Its best to keep the discussion to one topic.

That clown looks awful. Is part of its tail missing or just not showing in the pic?

It helps some... another question though, sorry.

Do the white parts look milky or more solid and substrantial. Sorta leaning towards Brooklynella but I need more "clarity" so to speak. It makes a large difference in the treatment type.

Cheers
Steve
