My Clownfish is Sick, Please Help!


New Member
My clownfish has had this crater looking thing on his face the past week. I’ve been treating it was a medication for bacteria infections but I’ve had no success. I’ve piggybacked this with several 25% water changes, no luck. Since this has started, my poor guy has gotten popping eye as well as minor fin rot. Anyone have an idea what this is or any suggestions? Hoping he makes it long enough to try something new out.

That looks like a wound. Is there aggression going on with another fish? If there are other fish in tank, observe closely to see if you notice aggression. Also, bad idea to hand handle any fish, but particularly a sick fish. Do you have a quarantine tank?

What are you using to treat the fish?
