Clowns Have Black Spots

I just notice my two clowns are getting black spots between there first and second strips is this normal or are they getting stung by something. I have no anemone only a Small Xenia Frag and a Frog Spawn Frag and a few Zoo's and Polyps... Just wondering could they just be getting larger I've had them Since Sept 08 I believe.

Probably the frogspawn.

Make sure you take pictures every month or so. That way you can look back and see the growth. It's hard to see it when you look at your tank on a daily basis. But going back and looking at pictures... you can really see the difference.

Mine developed so black spots after hosting in some zoos for a couple weeks. It eventually left the zoos and after a number of months the spots faded. HTH

Happy Reefing!

They don't necessarily have to host in the coral to get stung. My clown has never adopted anything, except for the left rear corner of the tank! Even with bubbles and torches, it never actively swam around in them. But it still managed to occassionaly get stung.
