Hi guys,
First post - wish me luck.
Just looking for quick opinion re my female premnas clown and her facial/head injury (or what appears to be an injury?)
Seems to have happened while just before or while laying eggs..
Still eating and maintaining her energetic (slightly aggressive) temperament.
Wondering if there’s anything I should be doing to treat the wound.

Cheers

That looks a lot like a slice from a tang, is that a purple tang in the pic?

Either way, it looks pretty clean, so I wouldn’t treat it unless it worsens.

BTW; I just read yesterday that taxonomists have changed the genus Premnas to Amphiprion ... I’ll never get used to that!

Cheers Jay - yep have two tangs blue + purple.
Think I’ll stick with premnas too (already enough names to remember)
 

Do you care whether or not you have wave action in your reef tank?
