Sick percula clown

My clownfish had a small dark spot on his chin when I got him and I didn't think anything of it because it was so small. Now his whole jaw looks to be rotting away. Anyone have an idea as to what this might be?

Don't look good , don't know what it is? But you might want to try a fresh water dip, with the ph at 8.0 and the same temp, I'm assuming it's parasites and maybe they'll fall off, I'd leave him in there for a couple minutes , they might swell and fall off...

It's a bacterial infection we believe now. Got him in the hospital tank with some instant ocean meds and it already looks 100% better. The guy at petco called it "jaw rot". He is on his way to a speedy recovery. I will say no more buying fish and coral from our lfs "fish pros". I'm tired of getting sick fish and coral from them. His mate already died the second day after I put him in the tank. It's like really?
