    Hard to tell from the picture...

    I would keep the clown in the QT until the fungus has passed. I'm sure there is some type of med (copper would do it) to clean this up. The good news is you caught it before it was in your main tank.

    ok so now the stuff has grown and looks like tree bark ... it has also started to grow into its mouth and looks like a worm/string of fish poo (colour is very close to the colour of fish poo
