Aren't clowns supposed to be funny?

Seriously is anybody picking on him? Any new fish added recently?

Any spots or streaks on him? I have a friend whose trigger did that. I personally believe it was a bacterial infection. He then developed red streaks on his body. The goofass didn't diagnose him correctly and treated him w/Melafix only. By the time I intervened, it was too late; he didn't make it. A prompt/correct diagnosis is so important (I think).
