I would say give it a another month to settle before anything.

I had my share of anemone care, more worry than enjoyment. IMO soft corals like mushrooms, green star polyps and anthelia. But do your research before u choose to bring one home.

Thanks Heera,

Nemo's expanded a little more through-out the tank but he still seems to be "hosting" his rock, I use that word loosely.

Could I do anything to help the little clown out?

get back to me. thanks

I can totally relate. My memo and his dad..
let's rephrase, pair of my clownfish did the same thing. They always hung around the same rock in a corner. When I turned all powerheads and filters off they went swimming around. I was so jealous of other people tanks when I saw their fish swimming around having fun.

Since I have added more fish they go all over the tank. But still do most of the time there.

IMO it's like having party with 1-2 or party with lots of people

my maroon and yellow clown did the same exact thing..actually wouldnt even come out from behind my rocks unless feeding...that lasted for about a week. now he freely swims thru-out the tank...even snatches pieces of krill of my triggers....talk about bravery

My clowns are STILL hanging out in an upper corner of my tank. Sometimes they swim around or ride the return pump flow, but for the most part they stay to themselves. Just quirky clown behavior. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

The action of moving down to the sump will aerate the water enough. All an air stone will do is cause salt creep and be noisy.
If it has a battery back up, keep it for power outages

If u don't mind Plz do get rid of the bubbler. There is really no need for it.
Powerheads and filters break the surface enough for air exchange.
