If you can catch him before he gets too weak from not eating, a freshwater dip may be able to get some of the internal parasites out. At least three minutes.

If you wait until he is too weak the stress from being caught and freshwater may cause even more damage unnecessarily

A water change even if my water params are:
S.G. 1.022
Ph 8.2
Ammonia 0
Nitrite 0
Nitrate 0

I performed one on tuesday. Foxface became ill thursday. Clown started getting ill friday. It's lights out right now so I can't get him. Maybe after a good nights rest he'll come out. But I don't know if my LFS carries the right meds anyways.

When is the last time you added a fish, coral or invert?

I added 5 chromis on the 14th of January. The clowns killed all but 1 in three hours. All were removed as soon as they died. I've been watching the little one that survived like a hawk and he's been doing great. Always active, eating, never flashing or scratching on the rocks. No visible signs of parasites.

You have some angry clowns.

All of the fish that I have had white stringy poop survived. I never researched it nor treated except some I fw dipped. It was their only symptom.

Like I said, Garlic Guard should stimulate his apetite making him eat.

Ok I'll try it tomorrow morning if the LFS has some. Yes they are very angry at times. The female is a good three and a half inches. She is a beast of a woman.
The only reason the white poo is worrying me is because he stopped eating and his breathing became more rapid. I'll see where we're at in the morning and go from there. Thanks for the advice.

1st I would do a water change and raise your salinity. It should be 1.026. There is no advantage to keeping it at 1.022.
Next get some PraziPro to treat the fish for the internal parasites which are the cause of the stringy poop.

Not meaning to sound rude but I've never heard of keeping the salinity up that high. At the most I keep it at 1.024. All my corals are doing fantastic where it's at now, isn't that a good sign? I've had it between 1.022-1.024 for the past six months now. If I raised it wouldn't it affect my corals and inverts?
I checked the pet store to see if they had any meds and they don't really specialize in SW so they didn't have any of the meds you all mentioned. I've had a busy day and haven't had much time to try and help him. He's still the same. But he does come out occassionally. I may go up to a different pet store about an hour away that is 100x better than the one here tomorrow.
