Clown markings (yet again!)

I have just aquired the most peculiar looking little Clown I have ever seen. It is definatley a clown but it does not have the middle black band / saddle that almost all other Clowns have. Instead it has a black stripe along it's back like a skunk loach!!! Of course I had to have it so it and a little friend (with a spot between his 2nd and 3rd stripes - what a find!) are now in quarantine. The only problem is they are tiny, only 2 cm long and look so fragile they could be blown away by a gust of water!! As soon as I can get hold of a digital camera I'll post some pics if people are interested.

Has anyone else come across this kind of marking on their clowns? What strangely marked clowns do people have?
