Clown Loaches with Velvet?

Howdy all,

I think I may have a case of Velvet with my tank of 8 clown loaches. I rescued a clown from a local lfs a few months ago and I believe he may be the cause. That said, I'm not completely sure I'm dealing with velvet. I've noticed odd black marks on some of my clowns. On one of my clowns, his dorsal fin has faded to white/clear and the fin is covered with small black spots. Does anyone have a picture of velvet so I can get a better idea? "Gold / white spots, or dust" is a little too vague - I'd rather get a photo id.
