Flase Clown sick?

I have 2 ocelleris (spelling?) clowns that have been in Qt for 3.5 weeks, then in the main for 4-5 weeks. Both were bought @ the same time, one was bigger than the other.

The larger one is now the smaller of the two and hasn't seemed to grow. It looks "dry" with some brown splotches starting to appear. She swims slowly and is breathing harder than the other. I have put her in QT for now, feeding garlic, etc.

She is still active (semi anyways), but looks like there is no slime coat on her. I haven't asked hte lfs what it might be yet.

Does anyone know what this might be? I don'tthink it's ich b/c the spots are brownish, not white.

TIA,

logan

Out of the two, the velvet is most like it by the description. The gills are not affected, though.

I'll take a pic tonight and post it.

Just the fact that she's eating but not gaining size or weight makes me think parasite.
