    Hi everyone. I just bought two young captive breed black ice clowns 5 days ago. They are happy active and eating. I got home from work today and saw some light black patches on the female. They arent raised and it looks like its just darker skin but they are smaller, about the size of a grain of sand or a little bigger. I dont know if its black ick or stings from my zoa. Any thoughts? Id upload a pic but she wont hold still.

    Might be a parasite. If still the same today, a 3 minute freshwater dip might be in order. You'd want to read up on how to do it.
