Without knowing some pertinent info about your system, it's pretty much a guessing game for now. If you could follow this sticky, it will help us to help you. Before posting about sick fish, please read!!

Thank you, the tank was originally set up as a 55 gal. Running for 18 months, in Oct. moved everything in to an 80 gal bow tank.
Ph 8.2
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 10
Cal. 420
KH 8
SG 1.025
Temp 78.5
Do not add any additives to the tank, water changes every week, 10 gals.
The goby was in QT for 2 weeks in a 40 gal tank, he has been in the DT for 14 days. He has pretty much stayed in one area of the tank since he has been in there. There is one clown, he stays on the other side in his anemone, one scooter, 2 cleaner shrimp and 2 emeralds in the tank as well. They are feed a few flakes in the morning and a few pieces of brine every night. He was eating but has not tonight. Everyone else is looking good thus far, I appreciate any help.

I am 98% sure your goby has white spot, which can be cured by a chemical treatment!

In other words qt your goby and purchase an anti ich medication, no live rock and no inverts as the med will nuke the tank.

I think its white spot too, its hard to see on the yellow bodies. If you know how you could do a freshwater dip that should help on the off chance its not ich. Good luck tho
