Could be huffing and puffing a little bit more, but hard to tell, really.

I came home for lunch a few minutes ago and did my daily feeding, but no pale clownfish showed up. Since he was always coming out of the rocks to feed, I'm wondering if he didn't go to that great anemone in the sky. And I was just going to setup the qt tonight. Sigh.

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

Thanks for the concern, but it was too late. Got home from work this afternoon and found him stuck to the circulation pump. RIP, Floopy-do (named by my 4 yo son). Wish I could have done something for him.

Thanks for all y'all's help (as they say down here).

I thought clowns liked a Ph of around 6.8 - 7.2 ? isnt 7.8 a little bit high. But im just a beginner so i might be wrong ?

Well, I went to the LFS and bought a new buddy for my remaining clownfish. He's in a QT right now, but is looking good, and looking longingly at the DT which is a lot more fun, no doubt.

higher your ph to about 8.4. Also some clowns are faded in color, Idk why, Just breeding and traces of DNA and stuff. also switch to mysis shrimp, flakes add phosphates.
