My clown (oc) has the same markings only worse. He started laying in the zoos and the stings cause the scales to turn black for some reason. Hes obviously found something to play in that is causing a similar reaction. Personally I didn't worry after monitoring him for a couple days to make sure all other aspects were normal and indeed I did come home early one day to find him literally basking in a field of green sea mats.

Peace.

I realize the LR piece that I found the aiptasia was in fact in the main tank for about a week. The piece was removed a few days before the markings appeared (or least when I noticed them).

They don't seem to be much worse, and he's acting fine. I'm going to go with the assumption he was getting cozy with the aiptasia unless he starts acting sick.

Update - these black patches have faded a tiny bit, no new spots have appeared, and he's still doing fine.

I'm pretty sure he was trying to host with a large aiptaisia I discovered.

Another update - patches virtually gone, and he's okay.
