black spots on clownfish

Just come home from work and went to feed the tanks, went to feed the marines and noticed my female clown has developed black spots on her fins and some are in the white on her back. The male has a couple too.
These black ice clowns are my prude and joy and I am FREAKING OUT!!! please help?!?! :-(

So after freaking myself out over brooklynella i am fairly happy that the marks on my clowns are stings from other corals, probably my zoa stone as I recently moved it fairly close to the nem that is hosting the clowns.

Good news and good news, the clowns are still healthy as ever and the Black spots are slowly fading so im assuming it was stings from the palys that were a bit too close to the nem, also my nem has split so an all a good day!
