pale clownfish

I have 2 clownfish, well 1 of them seems to be pale or even a white color on him. I have treated the tank with a Ich medication and it seemed like it helped and then all of a sudden overnight its back. The other clown appears to be just fine. All paras are 0 except nitrate which is 20ppm. Any suggestions?

I don't know beacuse I got my water tested by this shop (LFS) And I trust them, beacuse they have very healthy fish there.. My fish is al better now! I turned the filter on.. But it was stuff on the filter!! I thought it was dead, but then i shook the filter and it started swimming again. Thanks for the concern though. Hows your pale clown fish..? Hope it's doing better. I read about it that it spreads and its a diseas that's common among clown fishes!! Well good luuuck!!

Maybe Brooklynella?

Brooklynella Disease Education from FishVet, Inc.

If it is Brooklynella and you choose to do a FW dip, make sure you research it a little more to grasp a better understanding of the correct way to do it and some of the precautions that should be administered.

My LFS are big garlic fans. They believe in soaking the fish's food in garlic and even putting them in concentrated garlic/saltwater solutions.

Try posting some pictures?

Faded colors can be from the wrong pH, that same poor diet and a few other things. What's your pH?

Get a heater asap. At night that will drop quickly. What do you feed them and how often?
