Is this fin rot?

Hey guys my clown fish hasn't been eating for a week & I just noticed one of his fins is almost gone! Fin rot or result of a fight?

So this is what I'm guessing is happening. If you have a clown and are going to add another clown (keep in mind you only want 2 clowns- not more), you need to add a smaller one than you already have. The small one is probably kicking the crap outta the big one. Gonna need to separate them if this is the case. Maybe someone else can validate this please?

I don't think so, if anything they seem to get on great and could even be mating, they're constantly 'dancing' together

That's very possible. Dotty backs and damsels are also very aggressive fish. They could be bullying the clown.
