Hi guys recently bought a 2 year old fluval m60, came with 2 picasso clowns breeding pair.
This morning I noticed these white marks on the side of the smaller one.
I've had clowns before but not seen anything like this.
Any help??
Cheers

Could be a burn from a heater if you have one in the tank.
Or a ammonia burn, you might have had a spike from the move.
I would test your water to rule that out first.

Red patches can be acclimation stress, ammonia poisoning, or it could be a bite or sting.  Hard to tell from the pic.

Yes they host a toadstool. Was hoping it was just a random mark from transportation and not a disease. They are both feeding well so fingers crossed.
