Is my clown sick?

I have got a common clown, only a few days in my tank. But it only stays at the back of the tank and mostly is always swimming pointing head down. Does not swim round the tank. Is this some thing to worry about?

My clowns have been in my tank for months and they also rarely come out from their right back corner. lol

Just give him some more time to adjust, he'll eventually come out a bit more I bet. Is the clown eating and does it look ok?

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

Wondering the same .. does he eat? My clowns when they 'sleep' are head down in a back corner of the tank. Maybe your clown feels safe there.. try putting osme garlic in a dry food or feeding frozen to entice him out. He may just be still getting use to your tank. Does he have any hiding places?
