Have an antibiotic handy in case the wounds/sores become infected.
The fact that he's eating goes against the classic symptoms of clownfish disease. Be sure of what you have before treating.
"Typically a standard 37% formalin solution is mixed with either fresh or saltwater in a separate treatment container, intitially all fish are given a quick dip or a prolonged bath, followed by continued treatment and care in a QT."
The fish does have swelling on the gills. There are some small strips of white that come and go on the body which do seem like mucus.
Right now I have a 12 gallon GT ready to go with display tank water added last night.
I put 1 teaspoon of Formulain 3 this morning and removed activated carbon.
I was planning on putting the pair of clownfish in it tonight.
