    The fish is eating and seems normal but look at the pics -- what is wrong?
    Can I do anything about this? The fish is a new buy and added to a fully cycled tank and no ammonia or nitrites or nitrates spiked after addition.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Could be an injury from moving in and out of the LR. Is there a chance the fish is being bullied?

    Seems like it got scratched up by rock.

    Keep a close eye on it but nothing to worry about.

    I haven't seen any one bully him (just two small clowns but they keep to them selves.
    Sometimes he hangs with them but no aggression seen at all.
