Not sure I would call her a sick fish?

Hi all,

I got paired black & white clownfish for 45 days now. Female 4.5inch and male is 3inch. They always had been swimming together, eating together and play together without attacking each other.

Until yesterday I came home, the female tail got ripped, so I check if it looks like a deceases...but I don't think it is....

I took a close up picture for u guys to look...pls let me know your thought...if she really sick, I will fix her up. Thank you in Advance!

Attachment:
1: This paired in a 24" tank (i want to breed them)
2: Her right side.
3. Her left side. I noticed some very small colorless spot, is it a decease or they are fight each other?

Are there any other fish in the tank? Could her tail have been sucked in a pump or a a filter?

Before her tail has a curve tail almost like a heart...now torn apart.

Im not sure what you think looks infected

If you can speperate the clowns i would... If not then just make sure your water parameters are steady and it will grow back

Thank you...or do you think it causes from I didn't feed them dinner on time? I normally feed them at 4pm, but last night I didn't get home until 11pm. Do you think that the case?

No, feeding time is irrelevant... Have you seen any agression between the two clowns??

Have you added anything else to the tank lately? I had a pair that got along wonderfully until I added a yellow tang once. Then the female would nip at the male. He found another area in the tank to hang out but died later.
