IMO thats to many fish in sucha small size tank.

What kind of lighting do you have on the tank?

Have you seen your damsel or any other clowns being agressive toward the one clown with the damage?

did u give the white spotted fish a FW bath? that seems to work sometimes although it doesnt kill the paracites within the tank

and i found out the hard way about too many clownfish (1 too many :P ) the best thing to do is get rid of some while your not to attached to them.

umm.. if the fish's skin was torn then the white spot may be an infection or something.. you shoul isolate it in another tank and treat it..

Sorry to hear about your loss, Yes I think with the 3 foot tank you should have a better fish choice.

You really should get a hydromoter this way you can check your own salinity. You want your Specific Gravity to be in the 1.020 - 1.025 range.

Is your tap water city water? Do they treat water in singapore with clorene or other chemicals? If so did you declorinate your water before adding it to the tank? How much water temperature difference was there?

What temperature is your tank? You should shoot for 26-27C.
