We rescued a mated pair of maroon clowns from a majorly algae infested tank -- Penn is the large female and Teller is the little male. We can't remember if Penn had the beginnings of these growths when we rescued her, but they've been spreading. We've been keeping them in a QT tank until we scrubbed the algae tank and got it back up running. She's still got the appetite of a starving dog and does not seem to be bothered by it. We treated the tank with copper. The parameters in the QT tank are: Ph 7.0 (wow, good thing we just tested this for this post!!! We'll be fixing the PH, but we don't think it's related to Penn's weird growths...? maybe it is) Nitrite 0 Nitrates 20 KH 240 GH 180 Salinity 1.023 See pics for weirdness. Apologize if fuzzy, but she's really wiggly!
