Turns out I can take the clown back in a couple of weeks once he has settled down. I think I'll have to do some research and find some peaceful fish to get. I'm not worried about having a clown but it doesn't quite feel like a reef tank without Nemo.

You can absolutely still have a clown fish!! I have a b/w oscellaris clown. SO cute and funny. Just get an oscellaris, they're much more friendly than the tomato or maroon.

At the moment the clown is just hiding under a rock in a hole that its claimed as its own. He does come out to eat and right now the night lights are on but it was hiding a bit before that. Hopefully he is ok and it's not showing a sign of stress that I'm not picking up on.

I find myself adding small bits of food to try and get the fish to come out. Wrong thing to do I know but it eats all the food I put in which is good.

Yeah I watch the water quality like a hawk as I'm not having much luck with my fish. I usually do a water change once a week if I'm home.

This is all he does now. I don't know if all is well and he's hosting or if he's sick. He didn't eat very much this morning though.

Sometimes a fish can take up to a week to get comfortable on a new tank. I would just give her some time to get used to new place.

Hopefully it's eating enough to get through that time. I think I'm just comparing how much it eats with how much the molly eats and that thing is a pig!
