So I was back home in Hawaii for 3 weeks and when i got home my large 5" + clownfish had some sort of white growth on the side of her face on her spine, I did a freshwater dip and it cleared up but it has come back so i started searching the internet and everything i come across is clownfish disease, which it doesn't sound like.  Anyone know what it might be and how to get rid of it.  I will post a pic tonight, but wanted to get ideas.  She acts normal, eats and everything, even laid eggs again last night.  Any clues would be appreciated!

That sounds almost like Lymphocyctis.  It's a viral infection and when my clowns had it it was on the same spot and it was a white growth.  My fish cleared up in about a month, might want to google it.

Thats exactly what it sounds like, so sounds like its just a wait and see type thing since its a virus.
