Question freshwater dip...??

One of my clown fish has had a white spot on it's bottom fin for about a week and a half. The fish does not act sick and is eating as normal. I gave it a freshwater dip (per LFS guy) about 4 days ago, but spot is still there and now I have noticed another smaller spot on top (dorsal I believe) fin. I hope I did the dip right.

Matched temp and alk, inserted fish, monitored it for about 5 mins, and then returned to tank. I think I will dip again. If I am doing something wrong or should try something else please any info would be apreciated.

2 Clowns only fish
Coral look good.

Nitrite 0
Nitrate 0
Alk 2.4
PH 8.2
Ammonia 0
SG 1.026
Temp 78-82
