4-5 in maroonn clown

Hi
I no have a large maroon clown and its moving the sand up out of a certain area in my tank.

Is this normal?

I also have a fireback angel, what other fish are able to live peacefully with them?

Any advice needed
Thankyou

Welcome to AA

my clarkie is the same way
if he don't like something he moves it he is a strong lil bugger
he moved a rock 4x his size to the other side of the tank last night
it had to weigh over a pound easy
(hence the name Clown)

what size tank you have
are you planing a reef or fowlr
other inhabitants you have
tell us a little about your tank
picts are always nice too.

I have a 180litre tank.
I have the maroon clown, a fireback angel, 2 mexican turbo snails, 1 turbo snail, 2 hermits, 2 emerald green crabs and 2 cleaner shrimp.

I purchased a lovely toad stool coral today and it seems to be ok in my tank. It is my first ever coral.


Is this the only reason the maroon clown would be doing this? Its happening were she sleeps at night.

Nice looking tank

Think it's there way of marking their territory

my clown thinks it's a game I'll put a coral in he will move it somewhere else ,I put it back he does it again
it's kind of funny
