What could this be? Infection? Bacteria?

The fish is in QT, do I need to move him to the hospital tank and start treating him? I need to know what is this first thou..

It is always nice to believe that am a fish too .. For at least an hour each time

Figured out the problem. This is clownfish disease. The treatment is to dip the fish in a fresh water for 5min. Twice a day for 7 days.

Be careful with freshwater dips. They can stress the fish to the point of death.

I got two clownfish from the store. The one I posted his picture already died and Just came from work to found out that the other fish is almost dead of the same problem.

He is in bucket of fresh water now and I hope he did not reach the point of no return

take him out of the bucket. fresh water dips are not for long. brooklynella looks very different, has the tank cycled? stop buying fish and sort out your tank. what are your levels.

The good thing that both of them were in QT. One is dead and the other is in another tank (hospital tank). I dipped him in fresh water for almost 5 min (less than 5) and then moved him to the hospital tank. But i don't think he is going to make. He is paraplegic now

Both tanks are running 24/7 for more than a month. I tested them before buying the fish and all results came as 0 (using Api test kit).

The water was from my main tank and they were eating fine (I don't usually feed the guys in the QT). The test results now also Ammonia, no2 and no3 all 0

i find no3 being 0 impossible, so in other words your tank is uncycled? this isnt helping the issues. it looks like internal bleeding to me.
