Clown Fish Black Spot, Loss of Color

Hi everyone, I have a2 clown fish, a orchid dottyback, and a few hermit crabs/snails.. but today i noticed the smaller of the clown fish has been hiding and has black spots on both sides of him with color loss starting at the tail. I did some research and i couldn't find anything along those symptoms.
My temp is at 79, everything seemed to be ok, but now this happend..Please help

Can you tell us more about the system? Your clownfish looks pretty skinny and is obviously stressed.

Its a IM fusion 20, sock one side, media on the other. Hyrda 26 light, eshops skimmer. Temps are around 78-79. Feed frozen brine shrimp once daily. Other clown is larger but never bullied the smaller one i posted about. PH, Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate all in check. Salt levels reading around 31 parts. Unfortunately this fish has died.. :/

Well, it def wasn't doing well. What are the actual readings on your tests, all in check doesn't really tell us anything.

Frozen brine is not the best to feed. I would go to mysis shrimp or vitamin fortified brine shrimp. Feeding brine shrimp has no nutritional value.
