I'm sorry about your fish. That's horrible. Have you tested your water lately? He definitely had something happening with that tail, but just not sure what. If the temps only at 70, I wouldn't think that would burn him to that extent. Could be he had some prior injury that just showed up now. When he was in with that Other clown, he could've had an injury that got infected and took a little time to show up. It's not like you would've been able to see a red mark on a orange fish. Clowns do have teeth, so he could've gotten bitten. And they can be territorial.
Don't give up though! check your water parameters. If ammo is 0, nitrite is 0 and nitrate below 40, try another fish. Might wanna try to get the temp up a little, 72-78 is better, but don't think that had anything to do with your fish dying. I'm not trying to sound heartless here, but if the tank goes without any fish for too long, the BB will die and you'll have to recycle.
Let me know if you have any other questions or even just need to vent about your fish!!
