No...

The fish in question does not sound healthy, and the clown loach may be picking at it.

What fish do you have in the tank? What size tank? How long has it been set up, and what is your maintenance routine like? Have you added or lost any fish lately? Without more information, there is no way we can nail down a cause.

Somebody must bite or your fish wouldn't have a bite taken out of him .
