Welcome to AA! Sorry it's on such a sad note. My first pair of clowns did this as well, and they eventually died a few days after I got them. There are a number of things that could be wrong such as parasites, bad water quality diseased, etc. By now it is probably far to late to save it, but you can try. Can you test you water and post your parameters. Are you getting proper oxgen exchange via water surface aggitation. Do you see any unusual growths, any white speckles that look like salt?
