caught clownfish hosting frogspawn, white slime covering clown.

tonight I saw my clown hosting in my frogspawn, which ticked off the frogspawn and it completely closed.



right after I see the clown is covered in white slime? is this the fish' slime coat and it's just irritated from the coral?

fish seems fine, but I've never seen this kind of reaction from a clown hosted in a coral.

How long have you had these clowns? Any recent fish additions? Hopefully, he just got stung. He might also develop black dots from the sting.

back to normal this morning, clowns have been in 6 months no new fish within 3-4 months. I literally watched it get covered in the slime, guess he just got stung a bunch.
