Should i be moving him to his own tank and treating with anything or just let him heal by himself?
I have trouble keeping track of them as there are so many and they all look the same (other than size)how do you guy/girls keep track of all your clowns?
im not even sure how many i have now 20-30 at a guess
haha yea i thort i would move him but do you think i could catch it...... no way. Anyway he stopped breathing fast and is hanging out with his mates now.ClownLoachSharky wrote:If it is breathing fast, I would say it should move to it's oWn tank. I wouldn't be so worried if it was just the scratch.
the scratch is just about taken the hole side of him top to bottom front to back
i am going to change the rocks in the tank today as the ones in there have sharp edges and that is where i suspect he got traped
ill keep you posted on his recovery

It doesnt look like a fight mark, its more like a grase like hes slid along a rock on his side.
The skin or scales looks like it has peeled off half way down one side and was just flapping there but has come off now and is healing fast
just brought 9 more little guys today should be here tomorow
All the new clowns are fattening up nicely had one die on me, it must of jumped out of the bucket when i was transferring them into the main tank.
It went down behind the oven and i didn't find it till about a week later .
I counted them as they went in and thought the shop had miss counted them...dam my stupidity.
The only clowns i have ever lost are because i have done something wrong, last one i lost was 20 + cm died because i didn't tell the guy to triple bag them, they turned up with no water!! 3 out of 4 survived not nicely though they went straight from no water into main tank without acclimatising or quartine they came right eventually (what else could i had done)
still haven't ever had white spot......touch wood i don't no why if there ever was something to bring it on that surly would have done it,only thing i could think of that would be killing it is the UV light and plenty of filter cleans without killing the good bacteria.
Anyone else never had white spot and how do the prevent it? (other than the obvious ways clean water no stress etc)
and i upgraded the 10 gal to a 20 gal with the same amount of fish, with a bamboo shrimp and snails and there has been no problems.
