So I went yesterday and picked up 2 true percula clowns to add to my tank. Acclimated and added last night. The only other fish I have in the tank is a blue damsel.
When I put the clowns in, they stayed together and swam up and down in the corner of my 75g tight against the glass. It didn't seem normal for the clowns but I wrote it off as them being stressed by being put into a new environment...I was wondering if the blue damsel would create havoc on the new tank mates as he killed his last tank mate, another blue damsel... he stayed at the other side of the tank near his favorite rock.
So I wake up this morning to go check on them and find my blue damsel in the sand on his back not moving. I tried to steer him to swim but he was at the mercy of the current.
I think he tried to step up in the middle of the night and it looks as if the clowns put it on him. He's now gone! as soon as i took the damsel out of the tank the clowns are now swimming around like they own the place!
Is this common? My LFS
said the damsel might bully the clowns but I did't see that coming
