Looks like an anthias and could it have been fighting with the other clown?

That was the only thing I could think of! My two clowns fought often to establish dominance. Some of the aggression appeared very hostile to me.

No worries lol.
It's a Bartlett Anthias whom my daughter has named Pinker lol. Very active fish always swimming in front of the tank when the lights are on

I haven't noticed them ever fighting. A few weeks ago this same clown looked like a small part of his mouth was swollen and white but then it went away

My banded coral shrimp has been a little aggressive lately...well since he's gotten a bit bigger anyways, could it be him nipping at him? This particular clown is rather lazy...likes to stay on the sand in one spot and cruise until it's feeding time
