I have a Percula Clown, she's jumped out of the tank 3 times and luckily our dog spotted her right away each time so she's still kicking unfortunately her mate jumped out and didn't make it, I have a screen top now, I have a Flame Angel and a Linespot Flasher Wrasse and those two are buddies and two Blood Red Shrimp, on the pic of my tank you can see one in front sifting sand the other hides a lot in his little cave.

Make sure they are getting a good portion of light! Also spray the leaves with freshwater from time to time.
I have 2 Cheatomax Led's I run for 8 hours at night, I was going 12 hrs but it burnt up my cheato but now at 8 everything seems to be happy and I also don't want my mangroves to grow at a quicker rate.
