If ypu are refering to the little anemone it is apistasia and it is a pest! They grow in numbers rapidly. There are products like Joe's Juice that you can inject into the nem to kill it. Don't try to scrap it off as that will just cause more to sprout up! Hope this helps

Yes, I was referring to the small anemone. I thought that might be what it is. Darn.

Is your clown hosting any type of coral or anemone?

The black spots are sting marks where the fish has touched a coral and they are harmless. If your tank is ready you might think of getting an anemone for the clown. No biggie if you don't want anemones either, the clown may just bother the coral a little.

Don't make the mistake of waiting to long to get rid of that aiptasia, I did that years ago, and it was near impossible after they started showing up in more than just a few places. Hope it works out for you, best of luck
