    Hi all

    Got home today and my clown is covered in black spots, it look more like little black stains. Wat should I do about it.

    I have read that back spot normally goes away after a couple of weeks but is there something I can do get rid of it sooner?

    Does your clown host in a Euphyllia? If so it could be the cause of the black spots, the stinging cells of the corals cause pigment deformation in clowns causing black spots.
