    I have a few question. Two of my fish died recently, a Clarkii clownfish and Black spot Tang.(Clown about a month old in my tank and the tang just recently acquired) Both died with the same manifestation, "SKIN PEELING".
    Q: is this a cause of a poor water quality or is this some common fish disease?

    TIA..

    This could be velvet if I'm not mistaken. Very contagious and should be treated:(
