    Hi guys got a clown fish 2 weeks ago and i noticed that he loves hiding behind the rocks he hardly swims around the tank is this normal behaviour for clownfish? He rarely cums up for his food either ...

    I had a pair but the smaller 1 died the next day after purchase because my salinity was low....so the big 1 survived the only other fish ive added yesterday was the damsel
