Sick clownfish

Hi there. Please help if you can. I have a 60 gallon saltwater tank with two clowns and a cleaner shrimp. I came back from a trip and they were not themselves. I think they may have Ich. One was lying on the sand and the other looked to have white around his mouth. I changed the charcoal to zeolite. They seem to be a bit better. I have a quarantine tank set up already. Just wanted to get advice for treatment. I do have formalin but have never used it. Please help. I'll include some pics. The last pic is my smaller one, he wouldn't come out. The other pics are of my female. Thanks.

Does the white look like grains of salt, like a fine white dusting or like torn skin & slimy?


If it is grains of salt it is ich, if a fine dust, oodinium (marine velvet) and the last one would be clown fish disease/ brookynella and needs to be treated ASAP as it move fast and is fatal.

It's alright, thankfully they are both fine. I just think they were stressed from me being gone for a few days. Thanks though.
