Clown fish

I finaly put a fish in my 20 gal and its acting weird?!? Its been in there for a day and just kinda stays in a corner or swims close to the glass. I have 5 hermit crabs and 2 turbo snails in the tank also. Is the fish gonna be alright? I think it may just be scared?!?

I just added clownfish to my tank a few weeks ago.

Mine actually hung out in the corner at first but now my pair usually hangs out about mid tank and occasionally swim around a bit.

Clowns usually pick a spot and stick to it for the post part. Mine actually go back to the same corner they first hung out in to sleep.

It doesn't sound like anything to worry about to me. I'd just give him a little more time to adjust and he may even pick a new spot to hang out in.

Completely normal. Take a deep breathe and relax

Your fish will be ok... It's gonna need a little time. Whenever I introduce a new fish I do it with the lights off and then cover the tank with a towel. Give it cover of the night to settle in and explore the tank.

Seems to work for me.
