I just fed them for the first time today( 1 mysis cube) and they didn't seem to like it. They would swallow it and spit it back up

It may cant really tell from the photo but if it has white spots its most likely ick. If your talking about near the dorsal fin behind the first white strip it may look like it but i cant tell from that photo.

Yea that's where it is. Could that be why it didn't eat the mysis?

Yep they usually don't eat when they have ick. He may need to be quarantined.

Soaking the food in garlic won't work?

Could I just soak the food in garlic?

And would my cleaner shrimp remove the ich?

Sorry for the double post.

Cleaner shrimp don't remove ich. I dont think that garlic cures ich but only can help prevent it by building up an immune system, even if it did work if the fish is not eating it wont help. You could buy a product like paraguard or do hypo salinity, but both methods are not invert safe.

Garlic does not cure ich. Your options are hypo-salinity or copper treatment. In both cases you need a small quarantine tank if you have any inverts/corals or plan for future inverts/corals.

Cleaner shrimp as stated will not remove ich.

Is it possible for it to go away by itself? Last night I turned off the lights, and i just woke and see that he only has one or two spots.

I let the temp go up to bout 81-82f last night cuz I heard raising temp can kill the bacteria. Could this be why most of the spots went away?

I guess its possible it will go away by itself but very unlikely. It will ultimately kill the clown, and can spread to the other one and any other fish inside the tank.
