I was checking out the med on amazon that maya said something about, quick cure? It contains malachite green just like the nox ich i have.. I cant just place my clown in a plastic container and leave him in it with just a drop of nox ich for 1 minute and with no salt.

Has he developed any other signs? The quick cure also contains formalin. Many folks suggest formalin dips. But the malachite green may work great alone, I'm just not familiar with it. I wouldn't use either of them if he doesn't have sure signs of a diagnosable disease. Fuzzy patches, slime coating, spots, etc. If you treat him with a med he doesn't need, it will do more harm than good. If he has all the signs and symptoms of Brooklynella then I would treat him.

Can you post pics so people can actually see it? Maybe someone is familiar with whatever he has.

Got one i took like 15 pics tryna catch him when he pauses then swims again. The best one i could take.. I had to use zoom because if i got to close he would run with the quickness. I really want to keep this perc, i like him alot.

U can see the spot above his fin, he has it on both sides, different shapes n sizes, doesnt seem bad but dont want it to spread!

Update: today i gave the perc a freshwater dip, i let him swim around for a minute then he stayed in for a additional 30 seconds dodging and avoiding the net. So about a min and a half. I just fed the tank and he is eating and the rapid breathing has gone down alot he also doesnt have as many spots. I think he is on the road to living healthy again.. But my gramma is flashing every now and then i tried to give him a freshwater dip but he keeps squeezing between rocks so i cant get to him.

I personally think you are doing too much. Everything you are doing is stressing the fish out. Esp the FW dip. I have yet to see a FW dip do any good. In most cases it stresses the fish out. The netting of the fish also stresses the fish out. I would just sit back and let the fish acclimate to your tank. Why did you do a FW dip? What do you plan on accomplishing by doing it? Just wondering.
