sick clown fish?

So I have 2 Black Clowns (tank bred) picked them up from Big Als about a week ago now and today I noticed on both of them the first fin on the top is becoming almost clearish in colour.

They are still eatting and swimming around just fine, nip each other a bit but not very often the QT tank is 20gal and they have lots of space to roam, theres also a bunch of LR rubble in the bottom of the tank just so its not bare.

Any idea what could be wrong with them?

Fish will change their colors throughout the day and especially when the lights go off to hide themselves from predators. What time of the day are you looking at them? Can you get a picture to show us what is happening?

looks like its the fin itself not a mucus at all really, only reason I say its "clear" is because its the same shape on both sides of the fin and in the same spot.

if it is just clear. I is probably okay. Go on to google and search black percula clownfish and look in images they all have a clearish strip on their fin if that is what you are talking about. I can not tell from the pic.

If the white strip on the image on google is what you are talking about it is okay but if not it could be a disease
