Noticed this afternoon this clownfish developed this perfectly circular red spot on it's head. It's swimming fine, eating well, and looks fine otherwise. Her buddy also seems fine. My concern is some sort of parasite or other issue so I wanted to post to see. My going theories are a rub spot from aggression since the spot seems to be a rub versus something on the fish directly, or maybe a sting from a torch in the tank? I have a very small torch and this is the more curious of the two clowns.

He's converted to Hindu.
Heh, my wife said the same thing!

Also want to add that this one has been crowding the Banggai a bit the last day or so. Swimming up beside it, real close, then the banggai kind of body slams it away and goes back to it's business.

We probably have the same warped sense of humour... I'm honestly not sure what it could be from, but maybe someone else with a white clownfish has seen this.
