Sorry about your fish. Metronidazole by seachem works good for sick fish.....don't know if he's too far gone but it's worth a shot and you can add it directly to the tank if he won't eat.

It cant hurt so I would do it. Alot of people soak the food in garlic juice because it boosts the immune system. Best of luck with ur clown.
