I came downstairs this morning and had a peer into my tank (part of my ritual: Fish, Coffee, Fag)and I got a little worried!
I have several bushes of green hair algae on my rocks. It's not a major issue as I have a Coral Angel who likes to munch through it. Anyway, one of my clowns was lying on top of one of the bushes on his side! The other clown was lying on his side on my power head. I assumed that they were dead but as I got closer, they shot off and began swimming around (and possibly laughing at me!). I checked my ammonia, nitrate and nitrite and they were all at zero and the fish have been fine all day.
Is this normal clown fish behaviour? Should I worry? I do love Bert and Ernie and don't want anything to happen to them!
How to make a small fortune: Start with a large fortune and then buy two fish tanks!
howdy! im gonna put your mind at ease straight away and tell you that your clown fish are just being themselves i have 4 clown fish myself and they like to lay on the submerged pump for my protien skimmer.
and to add to this factor my Regal tang hides away at night in a crack in my LR on her side! :)
