    So, for a few months, my tomato clown has had this brown spot on his cheek. It almost looks like a small smudge of dirt.

    Any ideas?

    Not getting bigger? Does it look bumped up, or indented or anything? I have no clue, really.

    If it isnt getting any bigger I wouldnt worry about it. Usually lumps on fish are infections, but if its just a spot my best guess would be a colour pattern like a freckel.

    I think it may be scar tissue from a wound that may have occurred during the house move...
