The Sleepy Clown Saga Continues... Maybe Sick Clown

Ok guys, i really need your help now. i just came home & my poor clown is so docile, he wouldn't ever eat. He's just teetering back and forth. I'm really concerned.

I checked my water params. Salinity is 1.025, Ammonia 0ppm, Nitrite 0ppm, Nitrate is up to 10 ppm ( I took out biowheel & did a 25% water change yesterday & the level has still not gone down.
Midas Blenny, scarlet crab & peppermint shrimp still OK.

What should I do?

What have you been feeding him in the past? Maybe try thawing some frozen carnivore type food and see if it perks him right up. Sometimes when mine appear to be bored or not cruising around I'll drop in a little cyclop-eez (frozen red pods) and they just go berserk.

I bet your clown will be fine.. I hope..

I tried that & he was not interested. I'll keep a watchfull eye, I'm just worried. I've only had him for about a month, but I've grown very attached.
