    Hi all,

    Recently my one clown fish (the one to be the male) has been hiding under my brain coral, the female or to be female hosted this coral a couple months ago.

    A couple months ago the female start to show signs of dominance over the other clown, with him going into submission.

    about two days ago he started going under the coral and lying on his side, he is healthy so I assume he's hiding from the other clown, she does beat him up a bit.

    Is there anything I can do to stop her from having a go at him so often so he can swim around?

    He comes gladly for food, I feed at 10 am and 6pm.

    Both fish appear to be healthy.

    as long as he is healthy its fine.
    In my smaller tank the male goes and hide in the hairy mushrooms, leaving the female to have the anemone all by herself.

    My pair of clowns have adopted a plate coral as their home - sit underneath the plate , between it and the rock
