My fish have a white powdery looking film covering them and their fins have begun to deteriorate. Already lost a powder blue, two clowns, daily in tang, blue tang and two Banghai cardinals. I would post pics, but I can't get it to work. Any advice would be appreciated!

From your description, sounds like Brooklynella.

Formalin baths will treat brook, so will acriflavine, and metroplex. I believe CP also treats brook. If you don't have these meds on hand, FW dips may give temp relief till you can get them.

Forgot to add, CP should not be used on wrasses or hippo tangs, ever.
