I bought three clowns. I put them in a quarantine tank. After 3rd day, I saw Ick. I treated with Maracide and triple-sulfa. (Now after finding your web site, I think I should have tried copper instead of the Maracide which said it was safe for ALL fish.)
The two small ones died, about 4 days after initial treatment. The larger one is hanging on. The ick spots sort of changed color (bright white to creamy white). Yesterday, I called local pet store and they suggested changing 1/2 water and giving him one day no meds. Then try Super Ick (half dose). So I tried the Super Ick this morning. This afternoon when I looked at the loach with a magnifing glass I could see his skin is peeling. So I did a water change (using water from my healthy 100 gal instead of tap water). I did not add any new medications.
