Uncomfortable?

My 2 clown fish used to swim through the little caves i made using the LR but since yesterday when i added 7 blue legged hermit crabs, the clownfish stopped swimming through the rocks (the hermits climbed them to clean). And now all my clownfish do is just swim above the rocks or swim up to the crabs and just stare at them. Could the clownfish be feeling uncomfortable with them crabs? or could they just be examining them:]

They'll be fine. I have clowns and several hermits and they still swim through the caves with the hermits on the rocks. Like you said, they're probably curious.

A clownfish is not worried about a hermit. They will be OK.

ahaha one really good thing that came from the hermits (although i doubt there is a connection) is that ever since i put em in, my female clown doesn't beat my male as often :P

She's just distracted for now. Kinda like when my wife is watching Young and the Restless, she doesn't ask me to take out trash and stuff like that.

The soap opera must be off now. She's on his case again. Again, just like my wife!
