He looks good, I dont know either. I would check the phosphates and nitrite though.

By that pic I cannot see anything wrong with the fish. Has its behavior changed at all since getting him?

If the fish has lost color, it is possible that it is a nutritional issue, or what maybe just as likely is that it is a Tank Raised clown and it was fed a color enhancing hormone food and since you do not have access to the same food...it is coming to a lesser color. From the pic, your clown looks good.

No behavior changes lately. I'll feed it more diverse foods and we'll see what happens. Thanks!

I am happy to report that I was at the LFS today and had my water checked and they basically got the same results as I did. Everything is fine except I have a tiny bit of Ammonia (not quite zero). I'll go easy on the food for the next few days and everything should be ok.

I'm thinking of adding another fish in the next few days. Any suggestions? A Yellow Tang?

Yelloe tangs like to have a bit more swimming room. The tank should be at least 4 feet long. Have you thought about a royal gramma?
