Sick clownfish?

Hi I'm new to the forum, my tank is 1 month old finished cycle and added two black clowns a peppermint shrimp and 3 turbo snails. 46 gallon bow with 30 lbs. live rock. Clownfish seemed to be paired when I purchased them. I put them in tank 1 week ago. First 5 days were fine even slept in sand together! The last 2 days the female will not eat and seems to be keeping her distance kind of swimming in place uninterested in food or the other clown. Her color also seems to be a little faded. Water parameters test fine amm 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 10, calcium 480. Can anyone help me I don't know wether to start some form of treatment or wait it out a few days. Also the other clown looks fine. Thanks

Just one raised bump on the right side of her head inside of her white stripe

I also upgraded my light on fri. But I didn't think that would have anything to do with it.

Are you sure it's fading on her sides and not ich? The fading looks to have some texture and is not even?

I'm not sure that's why I'm here but it doesn't look like specs or spots just general coating or fading

Right now lights are off and she's in the corner of the tank with my other clown looking like a pair again. I'm concerned about not eating for almost three days I'm gonna try a pellet food tomorrow. I've been feeding frozen mysis and flake
