One clown fish seems to have taken a turn for the worst and colour has changed..
Yeah defo stressed if losing colour.
If late now .after work tommorrow try look at fish best you can and get some photos up so others can see your remaining fish as losing colour not good sign but im not expert.
I hope its just temp related and he lost colour as stressed.my tank sitting same as yours noe at 28 degrees and mine seem ok so far ( touch wood) as i know im only one step away from being up that creek without a paddle lol )

I thought might be from ammonia but yeah no fin deterioration. Looks like he has 1 spot of ich on him. It might be possible that tank has ick but are hidden in the gills.
I think it’s just from the wavemaker causing bubbles as I have pulled it out a little bit to introduce plenty of oxygen

Morning update, only 7 hours later than when I checked…

Fish seemed okay, was too early to tell but weren’t gasping as before

Since then, temp is still coming down and clown fish are eating, goby sifting, so I think all is well…
I just need to keep an eye on it and try and figure out how to take apart the Fluval pump to see why it isn’t performing as it should
