Ok my first question:

My clownfish seems to have about 3 white dots on his body. One is right on his mouth, another on the right side and another on one of his right fins that seems to kind of bulge. I'm aware this may not be good, but i dont know if anyone knows what it is, and how to treat it.

Second Question:

On my live rock, there seems to be a small anenome type thing growing. Its far to small to take a picture of, but it seems to have a small stem connecting to the rock, then a ball with a bunch of little tentacles extending out of it. Like i said, its too small for a picture but does anyone have an idea as to what it could be??

The first is possibly ich. Do you have a pic? Is he scratching around.? Does it look like a grain of sugar? Also, how long has he been in the tank?

The second is possibly an aptasia anemone. They are pest, and you might want to do away with it by means of Joes Juice. They will multiply very quickly.

I am with revhtree on this one. Also the white dots might lead to other stuff. I had a clownfish and it had ich then it got popeye.
