Alright, so i've had these clowns since saturday and they have fallen in love with the current. As in they don't do anything else than swimming the current. They don't explore the tank at all. I've even woken up in the middle of the night to see them swimming right in front of my face. I don't think they sleep. Anything I can do to get them to move anywhere else?

Nope, thats what Clownfish do. Nothing. They pick a spot in the tank to call their territory, and thats where they hang out.

Yeah i know that with the other two i have in the 50g. but those two swim around the whole tank and keep a cave in the live rock.

These two stay out in the "open water" portion of the tank, right up near the top and just play in the downwards current there.

Ive never seen Clowns swim around a tank. Well, I've never seen Occelaris Clowns swim around. I've seen other Clowns swim the tank, like Clarki, Skunks, Maroons, Tomatoes.

Hmmmm alrighty. Any tips on catching a fish? Thinking about moving my pajama cardinal to the 29g. For such a slow swimmer she doesnt want to get caught.

Also my Royal Gramma looks like her tail is being nipped, showed up overnight, dont know what could have caused it.

I use 2 nets to catch fish, one to chase and the other to catch.
Got a fin nipper in the bunch? Crabs, when he's sleeping?

They are pretty cool though. He shouldn't be going after fish, then again, he's not supposed to nip at Corals, and he does that on occasion too. Never know with Crabs, thats why I don't keep em.

Capture of both the Pajama Cardinal and the Emerald Crab are complete.

Pajama Cardinal is now inhabiting the 29g. She seems a bit less shy now.

I think, emphasis on think, i saw a bristleworm on some live rock in the 50g.
