Nitrates are high, I would get that down with PWC's ASAP. Is it possible that the other two were picking on it?

I dont know for sure, but im guessing the other two clowns killed it. You should only really have 2 clowns per tank max because the pair can team up on the third. Any agression issues?

Sorry for your loss. I love mine and would be devastated to lose one.

I got her as a pair, no fighting what so ever, in fact she was the dominant one of the three clowns, one was her mate and the third was really too small to even try to pick on anyone.
