This morning when i wake up i notice that my large (4-5in) Maroon clown has some blue dicoloration on the lower part of his first strip.  His activity level seems normal other then he is sand blasting more then normal today?  What could casue this discoloration?

well "He" is actually a "she", do you have a pair or just her?  She looks like she is in breeding colors, very dark and has a blue outline along her gold stripe.  The blue coloration is nothing to worry about, unless you notice her starting to fade and lose color.  The fanning is her preparing her breeding site, ours does it all the time.  If you do have a pair and you notice their lips getting white/blue its because they are cleaning a place to lay eggs.

Proof that I must be sexist, I am fully aware that the Larger is the female, but still said HIM.  Ha ha ha, yes i have a pair, but they male is still a too young to breed i would think as he has only one yellow strip as of yet.  I thought all their strips have to turn before they are mature???

He is most likely still too young, but she's just going through the motions getting ready.  Ours did that for about six months until they finally started spawning.

While on the subject of clowns..... I added a smaller clown to my tank about a week ago and it is developing black spots. like 3-4 on one side and 1-2 on the other. Is that the process of changing? it is the smaller one so I didnt think that one would be changing. but I don't know. the 2 clowns swim together and host in the same area. is one changing and their hormones off or what?
 sorry to steal the thread. but your ? was already answered.Tongue
