injury followed by infection.

As long as the fish is eating with hunger, it will heal on its own.

Its feeding ok,not great compared to its other tank mates... previously it used to swim and move all the time , now swims less and shows active movement only when I put food in water.Also , it stays near the bottom close to the Live Sand most of the time..

There is a red spot in the lower lip of my common clown.Is anyone aware , is its a bacterial infection or is due to heat.My tank temperature is around 31degrees.The clown is active and feeding fine.

I have two common clown in my tank.

Please share your experiences if you have some.


I think you don't have to panic until your fish reduces its feeding regime. If it is feeding properly and active then it will be fit sooner . But, keep a eye on the fish, monitor its behavior very closely.

Observe it closely, if situation deteriorates give it a 5 -10 sec fresh water dip.

very good article krish da, but 1 problem and contradicting thing i found there in the article.

It mentioned matching the exact ph and temp.

Temp i can understand...but if i match the ph too, then how come its a freshwater bath. The concept of osmotic pressure is really good.

should we try it? Anyone tried it with success in Kolkata/India?

Freshwater dip???? for what??? First please find out what it wrong with the fish. A freshwater dip is very stressful and one should attempt it only after some experience with a Marine setup. Inspite of having a reef tank for many years I've never attempted one. Like the article says a FW dip is mostly for external parasites so unless you're sure your fish is infected please do not do any such thing till you've figured out the real problem.

Dont worry friend.
Surely i would recommend to take preventin at initial stage.

I would recommend you to use the following products.

1) Ocean Free Herbal Series T1
2) Ocean Free Herbal Series T2
3) Ocean Free Herbal Series T3
4) Ocean Free Herbal Series T4

Use them according to your requirement. The best part, add them directly into your reef tank. 100% reef safe. no side effect.

Please read the red colored part in the above sentences.

Bringing this red coloured point up just in order to clear any confusion that might trouble a few, only if it is meant that high pH can only be related to saltwater then it is better we clear every possible doubt by saying that high pH does exist in freswater/saltfree-water/water-without-any-salt, and pH is independant of salt addition.
To clear our doubts regarding pH in relation to saltwater aquarium, it best to go through the article in the link below:
http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2007-05/rhf/index.php

And, as far as RO water is concerned, it will be right to say that the pH of that water would have to be raised as required. Here is an interesting read on pH & RO water in the link below:
