Hello my black storm clownfish has been acting weird started this morning. I have another mocha storm clown and is normal. The parameters are all ok PH is normal, nitrate and nitrite are also normal and ammonia is at 0. I have a video too. It just swims in one spot facing downward. I’m worried he’s dying. He was eating well last night and goes for the food still.

I literally can’t see anything with how blue your light is. Post white light pics/vid

I have a clown that hasn't left the spot he is hosting for over a year. He only ventures about 5 inches when it's feeding time. In another tank I just added two clown, they haven't left this one corner in 2 weeks. My understanding is that clowns simply stay put in some cases.

Ok so yesterday he was just fine then at 1:50am today, he’s laying on the sand bed and breathing heavy. The parameters are all great, ammonia at 0, nitrite at 0 and nitrate at 0 and PH at 8
Do you have a video?

Temp is at 79 and salinity is .026 I tested it and it’s normal I even called the aquarium store I always go to and where they’ve helped me before but the clownfish is swimming around now. I have 3 anemones now and hope the clone host in one of those instead of the Duncan coral because they seem small still but they’ll host where ever they want
