    Hi all

    My clown has got the weirdest things around it's face. I is a cist-like growth that looks like a pimple. He has two on on the bottom below his jaw and the other on his side. Does anyone know what that could be? It is not ich as believe me I know what that looks like! Is it a parasite? A mini barnacle?
    I have lost one clown already not sure if it is the same thing? He had like a blood sucker on him. He went blind as well.
    Thanks
    Willie
