Hi,

I bet those guys are getting stung by some coral that they are hosting in or swimming by..

Its called Melanism, happens to a lot of clownfish. Pigment change in their skin; they are not sick like a disease.

you have something in your tank that can sting them?

if they have melansim, then no you dont have to worry about them; they will be fine.

What kind of sinluaria?

Some of the can string; and if this was a new addition then the clownfish showed those spots; its probably the Sin...

Nothing, you dont have to do anything.. You can remove the coral if you dont want it in there or you can purchse something else for them to host in.

Think of it as your fishes body reacting to the sting; the skin gets a darker pigment.

Your fish are not contagious nor do they have a disease.

If your worried about them dying I have never seen it.

So, enjoy them =)
