Because its a fowler! Lol. Have you thought about introducing some corals to add some colour, or is it a new set up? With only the two clowns and I can't tell what the other fish is but if they are all reef safe it might be worth looking into some hardy low light corals. I bit more rock might make it look a bit better.

+1. Im going through this with my fowlr. (the drab look). Both tank age and corals would most def help with this issue. As a tank ages, it "matures" and all kinds of wonderful things happen. Just stick with it and check out some beginner corals

You should add a watchman goby and a pistol shrimp if you want some interesting livestock

I don't think I can add anymore fish because I have a pseudochromis. But my birthday is coming up and I'm asking for star polyps and a Duncan coral. Hopefully I can get some more dead rock

A nice bright background would completely give it another look.

Yeah +1 for the background. IMO adding a nice black background makes the fishes bright colours really pop and stand out.

Is the heater supposed to be touching the sand bed like that? And if I were you I would add some coralline algae. That is if you like coralline. It's really neat and it will cover your live rock with an awesome purple pink or reddish color. I bought a small piece of live rock from petco that was covered in coralline.
