The Clown has been going about its business with some spots still on it. My wife says it got better, I think there is an extra spot or to.

Today I bought a Cleaner Shrimp to see if it would help out the Clown. The Clown is scared of it, hopefully this changes...

YMMV with cleaners and clowns. Every one I have had has ignored them. I hope you have better luck !

Cheers

Well, we definitely have some ignoring going on in my tank. The Clown keep its distance at all times regardless of where the Shrimp is. The Cleaner Shrimp is cute though

I picked up some Garlic Extreme to add to the fish food. Probably a waste of $15 but it might help...
