Lost 1 of the Baby Clowns

One of the 3 baby clowns died this afternoon. He was the skinny one of the 3 and had shown some serious signs of stress in the store after he was netted. But there was no way I was going to take the other 3 and just leave him behind to be the only loach in the store.
He stopped eating this morning and began having trouble staying upright. On the post mortem netting I noticed he had some red streaks on his body. I'm thinking he already had some sort of internal infection brewing and that a new home and ich just pushed him over the edge.
I'm still treating the others for ich (using Aquatronics Clear Ich) and started them on Tetra anti-bacterial flake. I'm glad I hoarded a couple of cans because they don't make it or their anti-parasite food anymore.
Keep your fingers crossed.
