    hi guys i purchased 2 clowns 3days ago they are eating well and swimming around now and then! they seem to sit in the conner on the tank most of the time.

    why is this?

    is my water flow to powerful? iv got a submersible pump 1400l/h and a sunsun wave maker 3000l/h.

    will the wave maker be tiering them out?

    help would be appreciated

    maybe they sit in the corner because they where naughty :p

    Just switch off the sunsun and see if they swim around, I have 2 3000L/H sunsuns and 2x 2100l/H return pumps on and mine is fine and all of that in a 130L tank

    haha good one. they swim just in the back of the tank but when i switch the wave maker off they find them self to the front and all over.....

    could it be that they are still settling in?

    yip, you still have the 1400l/h pump on, think it is the back filter if I'm right

    A Beautiful place!
    Point the pump upwards to ensure gas exchange. Can you set it lower? Not too familiar with the sunsuns.

    The stop / start from a timer will wear out the sun sun in no time (lucky they cheap). :p
