Help with my Clown
I have a 3 " Maroon Clown with white stripes for 1 week in my 75 Gal. FOWLER tank. He was healthy when I bought him, swimming around and eating well. I noticed some white "flakiness" on his skin that has spread. Its not on his fins or gills, only the upper portion of his body. I bought a bubble tip anemone yesterday and he has been pushing up into it ever since. He did eat a little but did not really venture to far away from the anemone. His color is not as vibrant as when I first bought him, but he is still moving well.
I don't think its Ick because of the way it seems to flake off his skin. All water parameters are good, ammonia, nitrites-0, nitrates less than 20ppm. All other fish doing well including the snails and hermits. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!
