clown dieing

one of my 6 clowns just decided to become totally listless and looks like he'll be dead soon. others look great but he and a new striped catfish i put in there have some ich spots. the clown also has excessive mucus on the upper half of his body and a strange clear looking spike thing out of the side. i had no choice but to add "copper-safe" to the tank as it has worked on ich before (fyi mechilite green kills them dead) and also added some "clout" for the other problems. he isnt thin so count out worms. why did i break my "no pet-co." rule? is there a chance this will work? what in the hell killed this fish, if you have any ideas please email me at once at bullheimer@hotmail.com i'm in the us. thanks
