Oh no, beautiful clown how long had you had him? How long has your tank been running?

Hmm, any ideas why he died? What other livestock so you have and how big is the tank? Does he have a mate?

Oh dear, you may want to run for cover with that tang! You know they need to be in tanks ten times your size? I am not saying that is the reason the clown died but it ain't going to last long either. Did you test your water? What were the results?
