Does that have to do with the black spots even if they were hosting? Just curious. It could be ich, sometimes it is black not white

Sometimes when the clown is hosting it can get hypermelanization. If there are no corals in the tank, I would go with it being something parasitic.

If you've added any new fish or snails, etc.I would go with parasites. If you have corals or anemone, you can watch him closely, and if you are OCD about your fish and paranoid about parasites like I am ( seriously, I am!), pull him out and treat him just incase.

I would check you ammonia levels and the rest of your water parameters. I actually had my clowns show black spots and now they appear to be turning black.
