Clarkii clown emergency.......
I have bought 2 Clarkii Clown fish (about 1").One is fine, swimming,eating,chasing the other etc.But the other has a problem. It is not coming out of its shelter which it has made behind a coral.Its two eyes have bulged outwards.Moreover its not eating. Its just one day since I have bought them. There is only 2 of them in the tank. I have given the fish a freash water bath.But it did not help.Moreover the fish is becoming overly stressed.I have movedit to a Qt.What treatment shall I do?????????

You will find it very important to post your water parameters when asking for help.:) Also, what size is your tank?
