Clown behaviour #1
Hi

I bought a pair of clowns a few days ago and after going mad exploring the tank they seem to have 'paired' andto be nesting in the sand continuously.

The slightly smaller one acting as if female and the larger as a male, rubbing each other but seem to be content on the sand bed in the corner of the tank.

I have an anemone and even told its their favourite there seems to be no interest.

Is this normal behaviour - should I be worried? My water quality is A1...if i approach them they happily swim around the tank but to both end up in the corner again in a few minutes.

thanks in advance!

thats perfectly normal it'l take time for them to host anything even then theres no way of getting them to host your nem mine still sleep in the sand after digging their depression every night but host a branching hammer during the day!
