Assuming your tank is properly cycled, and your parameters are all good just give them time to adjust. Also it's sometimes best to check them in the store. This way you can choose the ones who are eating. Assuming your clowns are healthy there probably just settleing in. Try some frozen mysis, and sometimes TR clowns are adjusted to flake, if you haven't tried it already. Good luck, and don't worry im sure they'll come around.

Give them time. It sometimes takes several day for them to start. Right now they are stressed. I would not worry for the first week.
You say your tank cycled, what are you water parameters?

You may want to try hatching some live baby brine shrimp. My tank raised clowns love them.

You can get the eggs at a pet store, use a small cirtter cage ( ie. for hermit crabs) , siphon out some of your tank water , and within 24 hrs - Presto ! Wriggling swimming food for your guys to chase around and eat. It is more than they can resist.

Good luck

The tank parameters are okay.....No ammonia or trites. Nitrates are at 10....pH is at 8.3.

I used one of these when my clowns were small

THey just sat and grazed as the baby shrimp drizzled into the tank! You may want to switch to frozen natural foods too after they get going on the brine because I hear that the baby brine is hard on their little livers after a long periods of time, not sure if this is true or not, but you can switch to their reg food later just to be safe.

How did the hatchery thing work, and do the empty cyst go into the tank as well? Seems like a cool product, but does it work?
