I might... I've had a six line in the past but it didn't make it when I was going through troubles with my rodi water a couple pages back. I really like it. Maybe though thanks for the suggestion. Ill have to see it in person I heard if and when it flashes its remarkable.

Hey guys. I got this fish a little over 2 weeks ago. He was mated with the larger snowflake clown. The past couple of days he wasn't eating. He was breathing really heavy and swimming on the opposite side of the tank he normally is by. His breathing has improved since however his fins look damaged. What is wrong and is there anything I can do to save this fish. I drip acclimated them both together. They are the only fish in my 55 gallon tank. The female clown is fine. They both ate cyclopeeze / brine shrimp / mysis shrimp & pellets. Now the 1 healthy clown is only eating pellets & cyclopeeze. The sick clown as pictured has not eaten in about 4 days. My parameters are as follows:
Temp: 79* pH : 8.2
Ammonia: 0
Trites: 0
Trates: 5.0
Calcium: 440 mg/l
Kh : 8 *dkh = 143.2 ppm
Phos : 0-0.25 it's really hard to tell

I have to do a water change. But my levels look pretty good besides that.

I didn't see him this morning I skimmed through the tank quick but he wasn't in his normal hang out spots. I hope he's okay.

If you said his fins were damaged. It might been the female. My buddy recently had a female turn on the male after theyd been together for a over a year. they can and might kill the male if not seperated

Yeah I attached two pictures. I noticed his mouth turning a little light in color and the same with the top of his tail fin was like, white. Now it looks beat up and like its rotting.

Oh no! I don't have much experience, so no advice. I do hope you find the culprit and he heals up though!
