Clownfish disaster:(

My 6-8 year old fire clown suddenly has white cotton-like spots (clownfish disease?). I went out of town for 6 days, had a pet sitter, came home.... the cat has a bladder infection, the dog has an ear infection & my clown fish has this! Anyway, got everybody treated but the clown. I set up a great little hospital tank with meds from my fish store..... got everything all ready and COULDN'T CATCH THE FISH!!!! He had looked a little better by the time I got everything ready for him.... and after my 1 1/2 hr. round-trip to pick up the meds. Now I have completely stressed him out (& myself) trying to catch him! His spots are all back plus more! I've put Herbtana in the tank and am feeding garlic food (he's still eating well). I have coral in my tank so I'm wondering if there's anything else I can do without killing everything but the fish. Any ideas would be appreciated. Tried to take a pic but you can't see anything so I didn't post.

Wait until he is sleeping, when the lights are out, go up from underneath him with a net or I like to use plastic containers. I caught my two clowns very quickly that way.
