    From what I can tell and that is limited it does look like Cryptocaryon irritans. Must be a really virulent strain or something is off with the tank. Unfortunately at this point I would proceed with treatment and leaving the display fallow.

    I don't have a quarantine tank. Have a lot of snails and crabs in there with a few corals so really can't use a medication.

    Well the clowns are still alive but won't last long. Here is a pic from this morning. If you blow it up you can see he's not looking good. [​IMG]

    That looks more like Brookynella or Amyloodinium.

    If those fish die you will not be able to add fish for several weeks without passing the pathogen on to new fish.

    You may have more than one disease process going on. It would behoove you to get a QT at this point.

    Yeah I'm looking at setting up a 20 gallon for quarantine. Yeah I won't be adding anything for a while. The two chromis , fire fish and pajama cardinal look and act fine but so did the clowns until Friday.
