It could be them waking up. Do they look like that as soon as the lights come on? Also, it could be them trying to mate....?

The immune system lowers at night, while they are parked out.
The images do look like secondary bacterial infections, possibly from each other's nips.
Increase the vitamin content in their foods, they should be able to overcome this malady.

They appear to be completely healthy, and chow down like no tomarrow....

I do beleive once again you are correct afishyandos!

I think that because they are black rather than orange the little nips from them constantly biting each other leaves little marks at night, when they are more dormant.

How often should I feed clowns?...I have been feeding every other day, but unlike my dottyback, they never seem satisfied...I dont want to overfeed though! What should I add to their food to increase vit content?....Right now I am feeding them brine and marine cusine on rotation for variety, and the ocassional bite of fish or shrimp(I am a fishing guide!)

If you can stuff them with three or four pellets of New Life Spectrum food on your alternate days of the aforementioned foods, they will be most grateful!
