    Hey everyone. Need some help. My fish keep to be hiding behind the rocks. I'm not sure if they sick or if there is anything else that might be a problem. Any suggestions? I'll attach a pic in a few minutes

    Yeah it's a six foot. I have a regal as well, which is about 10cm from nose to tail - also hiding. A purple tang which comes out a bit. 3 chromis and 2 clown. They swim in the corners, and by the anemone. Corals are all in full swing. I'll supply a full tank pic if need be

    Are thye eating, the fish are they gaping for ear, did it just happend sundenly, did you test your water for nitrates. Nothing in your tank that could scare them. There any spots on them.

    I have considered this... I do however see a whitish film more of white spot on my purple tang. I'm not sure if they are hyperventilating or not. I'm considering they have a parasitic or bacterial infection. The fish do stay close to the bottom of the tank
