    Badbiker: I had a Maroon Clown. It was the most aggressive fish I have ever owned. It killed 2 of my Yellow Tailed Damsels and took 2 chunks out of my Powder Blue Tang before I figured out it was doing the damage. I would watch that Maroon Clown closely and see if it is not the problem. Just my 5c worth from previous experience.

    3 months ago your Tomato clown had foggy/cloudy eye. clown tomato - Marine Aquariums of South Africa As stated previously in this thread, it can be an indication of poor water quality.

    You need to give us all of the water parameters that you test for, photo's of your tank, how old is the tank, live rock, substrate etc. etc. Give us as much information as you can so we can try to figure out where the problem is.

    you can also add garlic power and a vitamen suppliment to their food.

    This will help boosrt their immune system and help them fight off any disease they are carrying.

    imo it's not fighting, otherwise the clowns would be hiding, the weaker hide when they get klapped by the dominant, unless it is hiding and you think they dead. If they are dead and their fins are intact, then must be disease from bad water managment, surly the other fish would show symptons before the clowns though.

    Unless it's that clown disease which I doubt

    Hey there bud if you going the copper route I hope you have fish only in that tank .... why dont you set up a hospital to treat the fish...... copper is going to give you grief if you have corals / inverts ......
