Hi Guys...

I would really appreciate if you could watch this video and let me know what you think.

I've a redsea 75 litre nano setup for nearly 2 years, the issue is that both clownfish will flash on the rocks, normal after i feed them and pumps are off.

This has been happening for a few months now, otherwise they act normally and are feeding.

None of the other fish, a blenny and Royal gramma have any issues.

All fish have been in the aquarium for around 2 years, the smaller clown was added about 3 months ago but this issue was here before with the bigger clown.

I cannot see any indication of disease on the fish, breathing seems normal.

What would you recommend I could try to solve this.

All parameters are stable and water changes every 2 weeks

Thanks for your time!!

Paul

I don't see anything visually wrong with them. I see them flashing into the zoas in the video, but that is just clownfish being goofy. It may have something to do with their normal hosting behavior of diving into the anemone after being fed, and they just try that with the zoas as well.

Nice tank though!
