I just took the top off and it swam away pretty fast, and it usually eats. There is only one other fish in the tank and it’s another gladiator clownfishIs it in that position all the time? Is it eating? Does it look healthy? Other fish that might be bullying it?
Sometimes clowns are shy like that and will hang out in a corner. As long as it has the strength to swim away from the suction and is eating I wouldn’t worry too much
He seems to only be doing this at night when the lights are dim, and. Seems to be doing a lot better today. I’m going to get my ammonia tested later today, and I’m new to the hobby, and I’m going as fast as my lfs recommendSounds like you're moving a bit faster than recommended. I'd get the ammonia tested.
I highly recommend a Seachem Ammonia badge. Amazon for 7 or 8 bucks and they're good for a year. If your ammonia is high, fish tend to stay higher in the water.
While I do agree that clowns are weird, it's best to eliminate ammonia as a cause of the weirdness.
