Sick Clown Fish

I've noticed this scab type marking on my male clown fish - but I don't know what it's from or how I can make it better? Anyone have any tips?

Sadly I had a clownfish with something similar and he did not make it. I tried to treat him with the instant ocean cure all med in my QT tank. But after a few days he didn't get any better. It looks like the same flesh rotting bacteria mine had. I will attach a pic. I would at least try the instant ocean meds.

I saw your clown. Your best chances of curing him would be to get him in QT and use an antibiotic based medication ASAP. Bacterial infections usually take a little time to kill but on a smaller fish, not long. If you can get some food fortified with garlic that may help boost his immune system some.
