My clown does something weirdly different just about everyday. Right now he acts like he's totally in love with my turbo snail. He even lays on the rock that the snail is on and just watches it. Sometimes he get too close and the snail slams it's shell on his nose. Too cute.

My Yellow Clown Goby didn't move or eat for 3 days.. and i was worrying just like you are now. 3 to 4 days later.. he chases down food and now explores my tank. Like i said before, don't expect anything to happen with the first week of having the fish, maybe even a bit longer. You need to give them time to adjust. If it's 2 - 3 weeks down the road and he still won't move much or eat.. then you can start worrying. But by then, it might be already dead lol.. if it hasn't eaten for 2 weeks i don't think it would be doing that good.

Just give it time.

Thanks. My hermit crabs seem to be doing fine and have eaten what the clown has not. lol. I hope he makes it fine. So it is normal for him to go up to the surface when lights out?

Mine sleeps up at the top, laying parallel with the glass wall. He tried to host with the mag float, but he's since gave up on that.

Question Clown sleeping at surface?

Hello. I would just like to clarify whether or not it is normal for my clown to be at the surface during lights out. Then when the lights are on he swims back down towards the bottom.

Thanks. Also he sleeps vertical with his mouth almost at the surface. Kind of strange.
