Hi leslie, i've noticed that my 2 clownfish have 2 or 3 black spots on them. I've read about black spots, but they do not have any of the symptoms other than the spots. They are very happy and are eating well, and can't stay away from my nemmie. I already feed them garlic flake food. What else can I do to make the black spots dissapear?its never been fatal in my experience.. i have mostly seen clownfish specifically occelaris clowns infected with it... all recovered with basic good husbandry practices.. no need to be nervious about it but dont let your gaurd down as this may lead to something else which may be fatal...
Yes...hypermelenization...either as spots or blotches...then sometimes the spots also develope because of stress....I had that when I added Canister Filter and also when I removed "Filtration"..(all at once as a Newbie)...then lastly, you get the Black Itch..all in "nutshell version"..Could corals not sting clowns and they have spots from being stung? Specially when they start hosting a new anemone. From what i know they have to develop a new "slime layer" for that anemone (get used to it's sting). Correct me if i am wrong but i am sure fish stung by corals could also reveal black spots?
