I had the same issue last night with one of my clowns, I dipped him in distilled water with a little strees coat and had to up the PH a little and make sure the water was the same temp. He was down to two spots by the am. The other thing I was going to try was a cleaner wrass. not sure where you could get one quick to remove the external parsites.

the freah water dip is a quick treeatment but not a cure...if at all possible remove fish to a QT tank . use a copper base med in the QT or hyposalinity.. if you use copper you cannot have inverts in there...
it is best to treat all the fish you have if possible. the parasite is not a nice one at all. it takes only one hidden inthe gill area to reinfest the whole tank. if all fish are removed fromthe tank for ( ibelive) it is a month to a month and a half it will die. by then the fish in QT will have gone and finished the treatment..
