When I took the fish to the lfs I mentioned that these were my first clown fish and was worried about the one that appeared sick to me and asked them if they could quarantine it since I believe they have more experience in it than I do. I don't know if it was because Im in there pretty much every weekend or cause they felt bad but they agreed to help me out and I will pick up the fish this weekend.
Velvet is definately a possibility but the more realistic probability would be Brooklynella. Be sure that when you go back to the LFS you find out how they treated the clown (if at all) and with what. Both maladies have completely different treatments and cannot be combined. Also, one week will not be enough time to ensure the clown is problem free. It would be a large risk to take it back after only one week. Treatment for either afliction should take about 2 weeks minimum plus recovery time after the fact to guage success.

After reading through numerous post here Ive been trying to avoiding doing things in a hurry so when I go this weekend I will ask to see what was done, what was used and also if they were able to pin point the problem. After what you wrote I doubt I'll be taking the fish home with me. Ill keep you posted.
