    I put two clowns into my tank on 26 December - 1 died after a week and the other after 10 days - the last one stated swimming like mad in the current in front of the pump - for hours on end. Next morning I found it dead and the cleaner shrimp was feeding on it. Is there something like a too strong current for these fish ? There other fish - Banggai Cardinals , cleaner shrimp urchin and starfish are 100 % ok - water is also fine. At the beginging they two of them stayed in a cave the whole time - also where I found the first one. Second one seemed fine - was feeding up to the end. Any comments ?

    Can be one of many reasons.

    Not enough airation in your tank.
    Cought with Cyonide.
    Fish where sick.
    Not acclimatized properly.

    Give us some details about your system and routines.Maybe there is an underlying problem that you did not know about.
