growth on clownfish's fin

I have a "true pair" of clownfish. I just noticed today that the male has a small clear bubble on his top fin. Is this something to be concerned about? TIA

maybe keep an eye on it see if it moves, and a size might help on id it.Like how big is that "clear bubble".

if its white dot looking, it could be the dreaded case of ich, if it doesnt go away.


Or its a air bubble stuck on the fin, or a piece of fine gravel... keep and eye on it!
