So noticed some white, stringy poop from one of my clowns a few weeks ago, but was acting and eating normally otherwise. Decided to start treating him internally (General cure + Focus mixed with pellets per what @Humblefish recommend on his thread) a few days ago, but he was not eating it, or anything for that matter. I tried the medication mixed with frozen cubes last night, and still nothing. I’m keeping the 2 clowns and a yellow wrasse in my 13.5 gal QT (which is more for observing since the the tank stays out in sight, so have live rock, sand and a cuc in there) until my main tank is fully cycled. He still has his full color and doesn’t look skinny or malnurished, but really concerned now that he’s stopped eating. Any recommendations on what to do next??

You could dose the General Cure into the water of the QT. Add a powerhead to help increase O2 levels as the meds will use a bit of the O2.
Another med I highly recommend is Piperizine to treat internal pathogens. Dose directly into the QT:

Awesome thanks! Would this be ok for the live rock and hermits/snail I have in the qt?

You think either of those would be effective getting rid of what he’s got, or should i pull him out and put him in a larger bucket for a few days or so to dose GC in that water?
