Bummer. Sorry for your loss.

When you say that the parameters are "good", what are the exact parameters? How do you test? Has it been eating well? What else is in the tank?

Did the clown and the 3 spot get along? The 3 is very very aggressive esp toward it's own kind.

If your 'my tanks' is correct, I'm not sure either, let alone both, belonged in a 10g

The 10G put them in close proximity... all the time. It's gotta make you wonder. How did feeding go? It must have been ... wild....

Seems to me it would have been the other way around with the 3 being intolerant.

feeding wasn't bad i'd put a little food on each side of the tank and they stayed in their pocket.it really wasn't to wild.like i said as long as the damsel stayed out of the cave there was peace

You should re-test your water. What are you using for flow? HOB filter? powerhead?

I would not rule out a decent size water change for safety sake either at this point
