Clown fish help please

So I got a small clown fish and he lived about 3-4 weeks and died of a heater burn but he always stayed in the top corners and never really swam out in the open or towards the live rock and I got a new one yesterday and he's doing the same staying in the top corners

Have you cycled the tank and what are your water parameters?

How did you acclimate and what is your heater set at. Could also be too low of flow in the tank, I have heard that not enough service agitation will make the oxygen in the water to low (long shot)

Hi I am also worried about my clown fish. Had him for six week and now he is swimming around in circles. Not spinning like whirling disease but swimming around about a 4 inch circle quite eraticlly
I have a 35 litre marine biube and change 2o% of the water every week

Flow is good to have. But clowns are goofy anyway so it hard to tell. Does e gasp for air?

Thank you for your reply. Found out it had clownfish disease. Purchased some medicine but my clown died last night. Just treating the tank now. It is caused by stress. I feel everything was done right apart from me purchasing two yellow tail damsels and introducing them. They are so aggressive to the clowns. If I could get them out of my tank I would. I've been told I can take them back. But it seems impossible to catch them Lynda

Yeah damsels are the worst. Hardy but nasty. U might be able to construct a trap. Try google or YouTube.
