Clown fish question

ok. SO i picked up 2 clowns last week while my bio cube was still in cycle..i housed them in my nano till the bio was ready..well the bio finished it's think and i have since added the two clowns and a condy anemone (i know it was a mistake and i shouldn't have added him yet) anyways. in my nano tank the clowns were playful and swimming around and out and about since i dropped em in..in my bio cube they stick to the back corner mostly..could they be scared on the anemone? when they do come out they come out on the opposite side of the tank as the anemone..could it be the flow? i have a 500 GPH power head in there on top of the stock power head(modified). any suggestions?

When I first put clowns in they did that, give them time and should be fine

I would remove it from a brand new tank. Nothing hosted my Condy until I got a pair of black saddleback clowns. My Oc clowns stay in their bubble tip and the saddlebacks stay in the Condy. it's really rare that anything will host a Condy but depending on your clown species it's possible
