Oh and I have one more question my clownfish I've had a few years now but for some reason It hangs out at the top with its fin out of the water sometimes he's sideways he starting to be a bit more normal and goes to the bottoms sometimes but I think my goby attacking him has scared him out of going to the bottom

The Clownfish does look stressed and is probably terrorized by the Goby. Not very fair for him.

The thing is he's been doing that before we got the goby for a long period of time it was just him in the tank and he even did it then the people at the pet store told us to get more live rock but that didn't work

Some fish just ain't right in the head much like some humans aren't. When you buy fish pay attention to what they are doing to determine if they are normal. Ask a person at the store to feed and see if they'll eat. I got a maroon clown that had been trapped in an overflow(brother bought a tank we found it when taking it down) for like a year. After being freed all it wanted to do was swim like it was stuck under my rocks. I traded it in.

As far as the person at the lfs: Never trust any one persons advice in this hobby. Don't even trust me. Over time experience will give you all the knowledge you need.

Having a skeptical stance will pay off.

Could it be a swim bladder issue ? Buoyancy problem ?

That's what I was thinking but he doesn't have any of the symptoms

If he's done it before you got your goby then bet that's his spot. My male hangs at the top sometimes just clown behaviour.
