sick clown fish

My clown fish looked to have ich a few days ago and now he seems to have scratched it off but a lot of his scales are gone in the afflicted area. He is loosing some of his color and his not eating or swimming much. I'll post a picture of him. He is also the male clown. The scratches are right by his head.

Sad to see and hear man.. that actually happened to my clown about two days ago and i was bummed because i knew what is was and was very hard to cure...


Sadly its called Brooklynella.. Heres a link Brooklynella Disease Education from FishVet, Inc.

Im pretty new to The SW world and ive onlyhad my tank for about 5 months but in those five months ive learned the hard way. And from now on ill QT my fish before adding them

Hopefully this helps a bit

Are you sure that's what it is? Also is it contagious the link didn't say?

Sorry about your clown. Not sure if it's contagious or not.
Best of luck, moving forward.
