Not coming out to swim around at all. Just staying in the corner. In fact, they have churned up the sand from swimming up and down so much. Is this behavior normal when you first put clowns in your tank ? I also have a couple of chromis. When I bought them,within a few hours they had made themselves at home...
This is common behavior. It took my ocellaris two months before it came out. Just keep an eye on it. Make sure its not gasping for breath, nauseously swimming (upside down, etc.), and is still eating.
