I bought 2 tank bred clowns about 2 weeks ago, when first bought they were pale orange/yellow, they seem to be changing color over the last say 4-5 days and I am wondering why? they almost have a sort of charred look, but are eating, swimming, and seem in excellent health, and no fin damage whatsoever, can anyone clarify:
From my experience, clowns do change color at times, and its normal. I had clowns that has black dots on them as well as though they have been to the mechanics or something. Heard that the dots might come from anemone or coral sting.
If it is eating well, swimming well, it should not be a problem
Thanks for the above, also wanted to mention they are NOT breathing rapidly whatsoever either, and have a big appetite, so am hoping as you mention nothing to worry about, the coloration change is only in the orange part, not the white.
