Banged up Lion?

The clear fins on the back and tail of my V. Lionfish have developed "cloud spots" on them, and the long side fins have seemed to break in half (they are not as long, straight and firm as they used to be). It eats once every 3 days (though I feed my other fish regularly, he doesn't pursue his food). I recently bought a tomato clown who has completely rearranged the sand formations in the tank...could that have stressed my lion out, or is he just sick? I've had this lion since cycle completion and would hate to lose him.

A volitan only wanting to eat every 3 days sounds a little odd to me. Mine eats like a horse and will get very excited if he thinks I'm gonna feed him.

Assuming that all your levels are right and the tank is big enough to house him, I think I would qt him and treat with antibiodic.
