My sebae keeps shriveling up, hiding under rocks, and going face down. It's not always shriveled and my clown keeps hosting it. But it does go face down a lot. Always shrinks when the clown leaves it... Is this normal? I just did a pwc and levels are good... I'm just worried about it.

Nems move around when they arent happy. If your water is good maybe theres somemthing else that it is looking for. What is the lighting on this tank? Maybe its ins search of that. How often are you feeding it and how much? Maybe its looking for food.

nems are so unpredictable which in a way is kinda cool, but it also caused me no end of worry when I had mine. LOL And mine stayed in the exact spot he started in and didnt move til I gave him back.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Well, when I woke up this morning, it was face up, wide open and the clown was swimming through it as if it was combing it. I target feed it every other day with frozen brine shrimp. Lighting is good, flow is good. idk, maybe i'm over reacting... sucks being the new guy to stuff...lol...

I learn something new every single day here so live and learn.

I;m not sure whats bugging your nem, everything seems as it should. Maybe you have an antsy one? Or maybe the clowns are too much for it. My coral that my clowns hosted was slowly dying die to the constant running against it. yours may be trying to hide from them. lol Just a thought.

Well, he was face down last night, but "fluffed" up after the clown was combing him. He was right side up, fully open this morning as the clown combed him. Maybe the clown not being around is the problem ???? That's the only time I see it upside down or shriveled... It's a trip, just don't wanna lose the lil bugger...

I go through the main tank. Easier for me to see where I need to fill it back up to.
