my male ocellaris clown that I have had for about a year now doesnt quite seem himself. He has been hanging out in his brain all day (no anemone so they hosted to a brain coral long ago... sleep in it all night). He didnt eat when i fed the tank today. He sort of went after a couple of morsels but took one and spit it out and went back to his coral. His breathing looks a little labored possibly but i could be reading into that too much. I dont see anything else wrong.

Are there any preventative measures I can take now... or anything I should look for? I have not added *anything* to this tank in many months. It does have flatworms that I siphon out constantly... dunno if he at one of those or something... all other fish are fine...

so, on another online board i posted this and a guy asked if he was constipated. I went to the tank and was surprised to see my clown actually swimming around.. and he was about to take a load off. funny... i think that's all it was! haha

Often times it is. Especially with anemones. 99% of the you can say its going to poop, its pooping, or it just pooped
