After moving some fish around and into a smaller aquarium over the last week, my clown has developed what appears to be white mite looking things on her..Eyes are looking a little cloudy and although she has always been lazy, now she is less active..
I've already gotten her into an even smaller bare bottom tank but I'm looking for legit ways to clean her up..I hope it isn't a lost cause as Emo Nemo has become a staple here..
TIA

Looks like Velvet to my eyes.

Well crap..I had thought of that but I've never seen any of these "live"...Ideas ?

ETA: I started the procedures from humble.fish as a precaution

I pulled her out this morning and just did the fresh dip..Eyes look better and she doesn't seem as "carpeted"..Looking around for some meds now

Ouch !
How are things going for the fish ??

She, unfortunately, did not make it past the second day..She was the only fish in that tank though so it has essentially been set to the side for a few months

Sorry to hear the fish didnt make it, How are the other fish doing ?
Sometimes odd things happen that are hard to find answers.

Velvet is merciless on fish and in order for a hobbyist to save a fish from this infection requires immediate action, and honestly, some foresight and readiness in case this happens. Velvet and Uronema are two just there is little you can do unless you were already ready for it.
