Yeah so I am almost 100% sure this us marine velvet. His fins are all frayed today and he's starting to get these almost fuzzy looking patches. If I remember correctly I need to do a copper treatment to fix this right? The fish ate quite a bit this afternoon so as bad as it is he's still at lest somewhat capable of fighting this. There are quite noticeable declines in how healthy he looks. Any thoughts on what I can do to save this guy?

Another twist I just thought of while I was driving. Like three or four weeks ago, about a week after I got my clown fish I noticed some of these same symptoms, the frayed fins and slight fuzzy like patches. However in my clowns it lasted only a day or two. I attributed it to possible fighting as I had noticed them nipping a couple times and didn't think anything of it. Then it went away and they've been fine since. I talked to the guy at my LFS and he suggested that its a bacterial infection. I'm baffled, don't know how to make heads or trails of it.

Yea, I'm with ya on this one. I'm not familiar enough with Velvet to give you even a guestimate on what you should do at this point. Ich on the other hand, well thats a different story. I don't know if you can let the fish go with that stuff, and see if they can battle that one out itself.
But, just from what I have read, Hyposalinity kills Velvet also.

Yeah I've read mixed reviews on it. I know its worse than ich. I gave him a freshwater dip and did a 50% watt change in the qt while he was in there. I believe that he looks better-ish. He doesn't have the white blotches all over him and I think his breathing has slowed some. I'm going to do another 50% water change tomorrow. Maybe I'll get lucky and slow this down so he can heal. Definitely got way worse today. Real bummer because I'm not sure I'll be able to save him at this point. Not swimming around really like he was before the dip. Been hiding all night.

Well thanks for the advise anyway. I guess its better he really broke out in the qt than my main tank at least. Maybe my others will make it through without any problems. I'll let you know if he ends up pulling through.

That guy is still eating and was swimming around today. He definitely looks better. I don't think I've necessarily cured him. His fins are cleared up though still looking pretty ragged. Also I noticed as he swims he is fully extending all his fins now instead of tucking then up against his body. Those white patches are all gone as well. Looking promising that he may have a chance. Maybe in a few weeks he'll pull through.

Nice. I've also seen malnutrition do that to a fish.
