Sick sixline wrasse

My sixline has patchy looking scales and a cloudy eye that has come and gone away a couple of times. I have treated by adding seachem focus and garlic guard to his food for 5 days. He still has a good appetite and is active should I try using something else such as paraguard which I bought the other day?

My parameters are
Nitrate-0
Nitrite-0
Ammonia-0
Ph-8.1

Make sure its not just sand that's attached to his body because of his slime coat.

They create a mucus coat at night to protect them from danger, a lot of stuff gets stuck on it including sand. Its really impressive what this fish can do! I really want another one some day (my guy jumped :-( ). It freaked me out at first, but I learned that he was ok. As long as he is eating and swimming fine, I wouldn't worry about it. Pictures if you can, that will help a lot!!

It is not sand I have looked him over good and he is starting to become less active so I did a paraguard dip tonight. I did the dip because I did not want to add anything to the tank. I would post pictures but my phone is messed up and I can't take any at the moment.

Can you get a camera and upload them from a computer? A picture can really help!

I really hope your guy will be ok! Good luck!
