Kinda hard to see, do see white spots that would suggest ick. Try googling pictures of ick to confirm.

Well personally I'd qt both and do a hyposalinity treatment. To be completly safe you should leave them qt'ed for 6-8 weeks to insure none is still living in your DT. Google hyposalinity treatment.

*edit*
Is the 5gallon your only option? That's a little small for 2 clowns.. but it can work.

Does she have corals?

And I know you didn't ask.. but 10 is a little small for 2 clowns. They should have a 20..

Yeah I know its too small just trying too help her. She has some mushrooms so they would have to be removed as well for hyposalinity.

Yes, if mushrooms were removed you could leave them in the 10 to do the hyposalinity. The fish need to be the only thing in the tank. Including no rock.
