    I have recently noticed my 2 year old Black Clownfish fins look as if they are slightly torn. Is this normal or could it possibly have a fin rot type disease?

    Welcome. Maybe someone nipping at him? Doesn't look too bad but keep an eye out for it worsening.

    The orange one does chase him occasionally so may it is just a bit of nipping! Just wanted to double check!! Thank you!

    Doesn’t look like it’s bad enough for alarm. Clowns are goobers. I had a female nearly kill her mate after having been bonded for a year. I barely saved him. I would watch him and make sure he doesn’t get battered more. And watch the tail for signs of infection.
