I have a biocube 29. 30lbs of rock. Have 2 clowns, damsel and a dottyback. Gonna add some corals this weekend. Been going for about 11 weeks. Been going slow. Right now all my levels are at 0. I did get some really good established rock so it helps a lot. But u might not always see it at 0. How much rock did you have again?

About 10 pounds. It's a 10g. But I'm also cycling a 29g. 10g is 5 weeks old. 29 is only 5 days old. No rock in that one but I ha live sand in there.

The black on your clown looks like natural coloration.

Not the clearest pic but the clown looks fine. The nitrates should be controlled. 30 ppm is a little high. Harder to control in a 29 gallon though. I have a 39 gallon with a 25-30 gallon sump and I really have to stay on top of parameters.

Clowns are funny. Sometimes they will hang at the top if they have a bully. But since its new i have read a bunch about where they will just hang at the top. I dont think i would be worried. The tank is young. He will move more as time goes on. Can always get him a friend to hang with. But they take a little while to get use to things. When i started adding fish all they would do is sit behind a rock in the back of the tank.
