I'm noticing my clowns coming to the surface of the water and sticking their heads out some. Is this normal?

That's usually a sign of not enough oxygen in the tank (if its gasping at the top) You have surface agitation so I can't see it being that.

Have you checked your parameters? Is anything scaring the fish.

Hey what size tank again? How tall is it? Was looking at your video again, the clowns seem fine for one. Swimming all over and even into the current. Surface movement seems to fine also.

If its tall you may want to think about adding a small nano power head left side towards the bottom facing the rocks.

Just thinking aloud.

They love the frozen food. I'm thinking about buying a piece of egg crate and making a lid . Gonna name the rectangular part of the lid with a flat edge to the front then gonna make the curve part a separate piece with a flat edge to the rear and glue a flat strip to the curve part so I can take off the curve part when needed
