My tank cycled last week and i wanted to add a couple of fish.
I was going to get three damsels, but i decided not to do so because i didn't want to tear down my rockwork trying to get them out later.
My current water reading
Ammonia and Nitrite are 0 and my nitrate is 20 ppm
my temp is currently 78.5, and that's because i finally turned on my AC
last night when i noticed that the temp was 83
I bought to clownfish yesterday at petco, 8 turbos snails and 7 hermit crabs.
I used the floating bag method to acclamate them and i did so for about an hour.
As soon as i put the clownfish in they went all the wyay to the bottom and started swinning funny. As if they were swimming against the current. They both stayed together at the bottom like 1 inch off the sand. All they have been doing is swimming that way wihtout moving around. This morning i found one clown fish in the other corner of the tank doing the same thing and the other was on the other side doing the same thing. i took the one that moved to the other side and put him back with the other one. They have stayied together since.
I turned off my powerheads thinking that i have too much waterflow in there and that has made them a little more active but they still don't look normal. I have a 90 gallon tank with two koralia 3's and the rio pump 2500 which does about the 750 gph
, while each Koralia does 850gph.
Here's a link to a video of the clownfish right now.

By the way, they are tank bred.
What should i do? are they fine and just getting used to the tank? they have been in there for almost 12 hours now.
