Hi, 6 out of 6 of my clowns have recovered well from ick. But this morning when I fed them algae wafers, the smallest one who is a bit skinny and less active as the others didn't seem to eat as much. All the others ate so much their stomachs swelled up and they swam funny cuz they ate so much hehe =). The little guy is sort of anti social, he doesnt swim with the others and he doesnt interact with them much, he just swims around by himself ignoring the others. He also doesnt seem to swim quite as strong as the others either, he just goes slow and steady while the others swim rapidly all over the place. After observing him for a while, he is darker then all the others in coloration. He does poke his little head and mouth into the substrate looking for food alot, so maybe he just didnt eat alot becau
