Before you rule out ich wait a day. The spots might come back. Ichs life cycle is different then most diseases. The ich will esentially fall of the fish, breed in the sand, and produce more ich and you will have more ich in the tank the next day and it will latch back onto the fish.

It is all about the oddballs

I noticed something on Tuesday morning after I acclimated him.

I haven't noticed anything since. Is there a possibility the fishes immune system could have gotten rid of it.

Clowns like a lot of other fish will spit out food and then ingest the smaller pieces, so that is pretty normal. Your fishes may have an immunity to ich, but any new fish would be open game. If that was not ich count yourself luck and invest in a QT as soon as you can muster up a few bucks. That would be responsible fish keeping.
Happy Reefing,

I think it would have just been sand, Ive been in the same situation. Where i go, "OMG ich!" 2 hours later, White spots gone.
Ichs a pretty long process too, It will stay on the fish for about 3 days before dropping off into the substrate and multiplying.
