    It looks like a bacterial infection.
    You should quarantine it, not sure what meds you would use so will wait on the fundis for their input.

    Sorry for your loss. You should have your clown tested to find out what was causing the issue, so that you do not lose another baby.

    Also get your water tested as a precaution before adding more livestock. Quarantine your fish / corals first. Always acclimate them using the drip method before adding them to ANY tank.

    When I woke up my cleaner shrimp had pretty much chowed the whole clown :(

    Always drip them in ... Bought a quarantine tank this weekend going to set it up ASAP .
