Seriously though, I don't think they're stretch marks. There would be no logical reason IMO why the fish's skin would stretch only on the black areas. Some Clowns get a paler area in the centre of the black stripes. I have one that's slim(ish) and has a pale spot on the top of the caudal peduncle stripe. No logic for that. Older Clowns also get pale edges to the stripes in a lot of cases.

Notice the smaller ones in my tank DON'T have the line, but the big ones do I assume it's just growth....some get it, some don't.
All the fish are beautiful. But have you noticed the whiteline in the center of the black? Plus I think you are the one that showed pictures of the different colors of the fish from different areas. Some of mine are orange and black and kind of rosey color. And some are pale white and black. And the ones that are black and white stay that way. If anything they get lighter (graying out). The others the orange and black stay pretty much that rosey glow. Just a thought.Oh and buy the way Martin I have been looking at the pictures you drew. You are one hell of a artist. Thank for sharing
Jerry, I would take what you have heard about the Clowns + goldfish with a very large pinch of salt. We have kept and observed Clowns of this size and bigger for a long time, and they have never shown the slightest bit of interest in attacking other species (and they have been in with quite a range of different fish species of varying sizes over the years).

I've looked at a few hundred 2.5"-3" clowns between last September and now trying to find one with a double line. A total failure. At the same time I was observing one of my khulis morphing his pattern and it never occurred to me that the double line may be a pattern change later in life....
OK, the key question: did anyone ever observe how the change takes place? (I'm rather curious if this is the same thing as with khulis).
