It can be that the inner ear is damaged on one side so that the sense of balance is , well yeah, off balance. In that case it needs more orientation points in the basin, especially sand for the ground. If it is something like this, it will gain controll over the next few weeks, but will allways show...

Hi amber,
Just had an idea. Do you have any plecos, I'm thinking of the Sturisoma family, in your tank? They are very fond of rasping other fishes skins and some of those fishes keep still until their skin is damaged down to the skales like it looks with your little friend.

Martin.
They're trying to recover from your lilac flame shirt. My eyesight's still a bit blurry.

Congratulations to everyone contributing to this surely great book. Who is publishing it in Germany?
If I may give a broad hint:
When do I get the job to do the German translation?

Thank you Helen. The other clown's fate is not decided yet. They are still quite shy, fast breathing and not eating. The first and the last are surely an effect to the brutal change into the new aquarium. It's the breathing thing that worries me. Lots of fresh water and some conditioner should help.

The water parameters were ok, no foul black areas in the underground, the wood was without any signs of decay, no tinfoil part from the frost food blister packages aso. When I rem...

As a precaution I put the rest in another tank, canged water and added some conditioner. Tomorrow I'll rip apart the aquarium, filters, deco aso. and try to...

I killed my clowns ...

and I don't know how. Tonight I went into my fishroom and found 5 big clown loaches dead in the tank. Alas, two of them where the supposed spawning pair, mentioned in a thread a few month ago. Now I know at least for sure that it was a couple. They had bloodshot and empty intestines and shallow skin...
