Drip acclimation should be done for 60-90 mins. Floating the bag is not necessary. The drip method acclimates to temperature as well.

Barring any physical health issues such as Ich the clown's behavior may have been induced by stress which should go away as the fish settles into its new environment. Keep us posted.

Ich was the first thing I looked for, first I looked on my black OC then on the reamst, non have it. Oh wow, I was way under par for drip. Thanks you for telling me that! I will definitely keep y'all posted.

No ish have Ich. But I just got home and my black OC is sorta pale. I'll post a photo on my profile so y'all can see it. My levels are all 0 and ph is 8.1. My other clown seems fine and is swimming around happily. I acclimated them both at the same time. Last night my black OC was swimming around like all was fine. He is still near the surface and is completely vertical. Still alive and moving his fins though.. What should I do?

And of course right before I take the pic he swims down and gains his color back and seems normal now. Still breathing fast though.

Pale=stress. Sometimes pale is also a symptom of brooklynella which hopefully it doesn't have. Have you noticed the other clown picking on this one?

Can you post pics of both clowns? They don't have to be perfect. I am guessing its stress.

Also, when the reg. ocellaris I guess "nips" the black one, the black one will shake really fast for about half a second then go bak to normal.
