I have a refug going and only a few hermits and snails in it now (in addition to lr and macro). I was wondering if putting my 5 clowns in there would be okay since I keep it under light 24/7.

I wouldn't expect it to stress them too much but wondered if anyone had any insights.

I would be curious how big the tank/refuge is (big enough to hold 5 fish)? And I would not recommend putting fish in an environment where the light is on 24 hrs a day. I don't know if I'm overcaring or overcautious, but fish do sleep and I would think that would not be the healthiest thing for them.

Just my opinion, anyone else?

I agree, my fish know when it's time for the lights to go out, if they don't go out on time they stress out.
