My clown settles down at night in the front corner of the tank. He kind of leans up against the glass. They act strange at times. The other day after he found him self a big ole live worm to eat he darted around the tank for a good 30 min and you would have thought he was going to die...

My 2 clowns sleep on the bottom every night also
It is odd that they do not run for cover once the lights go out

Before they had a host my percs would fan a depression in the sand to hang out it. They slept either in the crater in the sand or would go the top of the tank by a ph at lights out. Now they stay close to their anemone.

lol, I love my clowns too. Mine used to 'sleep' by the filter as well, and it'd scare me the first few nights. I thought my clowns were dying or something, then I learned that's their sleeping spot.

They're so easily 'trained' too. They know exactly when its feeding time, and where to go. I always drop the food in at the same spot, and when they see me lift the lid, or pick up the food canister, they go crazy! They always go right to that one spot. its so cute!

Phew... Y'all saved my life. I've been stressing out b/c of their odd behavior. Sometimes they would swim around the filter when light goes out and i always thought they were gonna die soon b/c they havn't slept for awhile... LOL This will help me sleep better. yey

You guys also relived my stress. I got a true percula with a rose tip anemone. He seems fine but earlier he was kinda floating on the top and then I touched him and he went back down in the water. He swims up and down up and down back and forth in a small area on the side of my tank where there are no rocks yet. He doesnt seem to like the rocks and hasnt been in the anemone sense I put them in there. When he was at the LFS he was in it all the time. When I acclimated him he was in it. But not now. I hope he will go back to it soon. Would it be a good idea to get another true perc? To go with him? Also with food... What do you guys feed them? I bought cyclopeeze for the rest of my tank and he eats it too and he also ate brine shrimp. But we bought this food... http://www.fishsupply.com/s4snl-41150.html And none of my fish will eat it. They eat it then spit it back out. I dont really understand. the guy at the LFS highly reccomended it and I have seen good reviews about it.

you can get another true perc if you'd like. My only recommendation is to get another clown the same size. do not get a bigger or smaller one. Partly so they wont get territorial, and mainly you can see one change from male to female as it becomes the dominant one. I found that interesting with mine, lol.

Give your current clown time to adjust. mine did not adjust till like 3 or 4 days later.

I feed my fish Nutrafin. I also drop frozen brine shrimp in once a week as well.

Agree with the bigger, but a smaller one is fine. Did you just get it from the LFS yesterday?
If so, just go back there and get another one around the same size or smaller.

Did you QT it before putting it in the tank? If not, you should check out the articles section here and start with Quarantine.

My pair of percs will eat just about anything that goes in the tank. So will most of the fish. My usual food is a home made blender much that I thaw out.
