My clownfish is acting a little strange. I just got him about 2 days ago, and he was doing fine, but ever since i put him in the tank, the clown jsut goes up and down. Like he swims up and down in the exact same spot for hours. Is that normal?

Good morning,

I think it's a good possibility that the fish may need more time to adapt to its new environment.

Hopefully you will receive some more responses today.

Best wishes for your fish!

That frequently happens right after a fish is introduced to a tank - especially if they're wild caught. Do you have places for him to hide? If not it could be that he's stressed that he's out in the open.
