I bought three clowns in August, they've been living in a 20gal alone until a couple days ago when I added a pair of german blue rams. [Side note: yes, I know the clowns will outgrow this space. I plan to put them in my 45gal once they get a little bit bigger]. They were treated for ich not long after purchase, but have been in good health since. I've observed some black spots on fins, but I was told this was normal.
For the past couple of days, one clown has been hiding most of the time sandwiched between leaves on a plant. I coaxed him out today and examined him - it appears he hasn't been eating (his belly looks hollow and I haven't seen him coming out to eat much) and the edges of his fins are a little bit white. He just looks sickly, too, especially when compared next to the other
