 One  of  my  sebae  clowns  has  got  a  small  red  spot  behind  its  right  fin.  I  just  noticed  it  today  and  was  wondering  what  it  could  be.  It  looks  like  a  pimple  or  boil  that  we  get  only  much  smaller  in  size.  
 Salinity  is  a  tad  high  at  1.025  but  I  am  reducing  it  slowly.  Temp  is  25.  No  idea  on  other  parameters.
 The  clowns  both  have  a  reddish  tinge  at  the  base  of  their  tails  which  can  be  seen  clearly  over  the  yellow.  Both  of  them  seem  normal,  very  active,  feeding  well  and  no  sign  of  stress.  
 Some  help  on  this,  please..

 Hi
 
 Such  reddening  may  indicate  poor  water  quality..If  this  is  the  case  the  stress  may  lead  to  further  diseases  in  your  clowns..
 
 Are  your  water  params  like  NH3,NO2,NO3  and  pH  within  acceptable  ranges?
 
 Regards
 
 Arvind

 Like  I  said  before  I  don't  have  a  clue  on  water  parameters.  My  test  kits  aren't  here  yet.
 I  ve  been  examining  the  clown  closely  and  it  looks  like  a  flesh  wound  to  me.  Stands  out  because  it  is  red  on  a  black  stripe.  I  can  see  broken  skin  and  the  area  is  swollen.  
 I  can  try  get  a  photo  but  I  wouldnt  bet  on  it.

 Not  sure  but  could  a  hitchhiker  in  your  live  rock  have  anything  to  do  with  the  wounds?

 Could  be  a  hitchhiker,  but  I  have  only  seen  one  bristleworm  which  I  took  out.  
 There  were  some  dead  mantis  shrimp  in  the  bag  with  the  LR  but  haven't  seen  any  in  the  tank.  I  had  a  couple  of  green  crabs  about  half  a  cm  long  but  haven't  seen  them  either.
 Should  I  take  them  out  and  put  them  in  a  quarantine  tank?  Will  the  wound  heal  itself  or  do  I  need  to  provide  some  assistance?  
 
 Pictures  but  I  don't  think  you  can  make  anything  out.

 If  its  not  too  much  trouble,removing  them  to  a  quarantine  tank  will  help  you  observe  them  better  and  take  any  urgent  steps  in  case  of  an  emergency  which  is  not  possible  if  the  fish  are  in  the  display
 
 IMO,remove  them  to  a  quarantine  tank  and  do  some  WCs  in  the  QT  tank..If  the  wounds  heal  out  we  can  be  sure  water  quality  is  the  culprit

 Do  u  have  any  crabs  in  your  tank.  Mostly  they  are  the  culprit.  fishes  do  tend  to  go  near  these  invertebrates  assuming  they  will  clean  their  body,  but  get  bittenup.  I  had  a  similar  experience  with  my  clown  tang.  It  got  bittenup  by  a  crab.  I  had  to  remove  the  crab.  Mantis  shrimps  could  also  be  one  of  the  culprits.  Keep  a  watch  on  the  clowns  particularly  at  night.
 
 All  the  best.

 Treat  the  fish  with  Melafix,  if  the  wound  is  visible.  Ensure  involving  a  good  skimmer  after  the  treatment,  if  you  dose  the  same  in  the  display  tank.

 Thanks  for  the  help  guys.
 The  fish  seems  to  be  normal  and  the  wound  is  healing.  I  will  transfer  them  into  a  quarantine  tank  for  a  few  days  when  I  lay  my  sand  bed.
 
 There  are  crabs  in  the  tank,  which  were  alive  when  I  got  the  LR,  but  I  havent  seen  them  since  I  put  them  in.
 
 Dont  worry,  Pironya  -  I  know  better  than  to  dose  in  the  main  tank.  If  I  dose  I  ll  move  them  to  a  quarantine  and  then  dose.
