I would look into the possibility of Brooklynella hostilis
. The filmy coating you describe is more consitant with that than C. irritans
. Being these are clowns, Brooklynella
is quite common in WC
species. Keep in mind that most "display tank" treatments considered safe are rarely effective on most types of parasites. Please be sure you research the problem as much as pssible and be sure which parasite you are treating.
If Brooklynella, you will need to QT all the fish
and treat with a series of dips in formalin
. C. irritans
(ich) will need either hyposalinity or copper.
