Smile ClownFish Inquiry

I just got a little guy. Now, I have two clowns, and this morning around 6:20am I woke up to go to class. And I always get up and turn the light on for a good ten minutes and just look at my fish in amazement. I noticed the little guy, (kinda like a cat does)...swimming around a little nook in a rock kind of laying down on it, like he was trying to get comfortable. It really made my heart warm up, it was THE most adorable thing I have ever seen a creature do. Has anybody else experienced this? Maybe I should buy an anemone so he can have a comfy bed...

There is no guarantee the clown will host an anemone. I forgot, how old is your tank and what kind of lighting do you have?

You might be surprised at what your new clown might host. It could be his new "nook"!

The clownfish is very cute the way it wags its tail. Made me smile when I had one. Rather sad that I no longer do The only other fish I have seen that acts like a puppy is the Dogface Puffer wagging its tail and begging for meal worms. Eats right out of your hand. very cool If only I had a bigger tank

They are literally clowns! Good idea not to get an anemone.....I have a rtba and my pair of clowns totally ignore it...they have staked out a corner of my tank to host.

No pictures of your new clowns??
