Added two clowns today.

Is it normal that they are both at the top of the tank hiding in the corner?

When should I turn the lights back on?

Has your tank cycled? How long did you acclimate? Water Parameters?

Yea everything sounds good! Good luck! Only other thing I could think of is that your water might be too cold/hot
