    anyone else have this problem? i have 2 clowns and a green chromis and they all tend to stay on the right side of the tank for some reason. sometimes they go to the middle but never to the left. Anyone else have fish that stay on one side?

    not sure i have a power head on the ride side which is the side they stay on. maybe i wil move it more to the middle and see what happens. the filter is on the left though so maybe that's what it could be.

    What's on the left hand side of the tank?
    Do humans stay mainly to right hand side?

    Clowns often will stay in a corner of the tank, I can't speak for chromis.

    You might try changing the current flow. Maybe add another powerhead to other end of tank. Also when u feed do you put food in at same place regulary? When u feed watch were most of the food seems to head to. Mine used to always hang out where the best feeding was. I changed flow and fed different place each time i fed and it helped.

    i put the right side power head near the back of the tank so i'm gunna move it to more of the middle of the right side and see what happens. maybe it will blow them to the middle/other side lol
