Clownfish

I am somewhat new to the hobby and have a maroon clownfish. When I came home and fed her today I noticed a discolored spot on her head. It's definitely not ich. Should I still be worried? She is still eating well but she didn't have the spot yesterday. Please help.

A pic would be most helpful in a diagnosis, but very often fish just get bumps and bruises like we do. If the spot just appeared it is likely just an abrasion. It may have whacked its head darting from another fish or such. Without a pic though I'm just guessing.

HTH some.

Agreed. A photo would help tremendously, as there are a lot of potential things it could be.

I'm hoping it's just where she bumped into a rock. I'll try and post a picture if I can.
