    Question Clown on it's side


    0 Not allowed!
    One of my clowns is laying on it's side. I can't see anything wrong with it. Everytime I walk over to the tank it swims away.
    It seems to be eating and swimming ok. When it swims away.
    I was going to do a water change tomorrow. Will I still go ahead and do that?

    If you can't see anything wrong with him he's fine. They're real characters when they're happy. Sleep on their sides, pile on eachother, and sometimes really freak you out.

    Yep, I though both of mine were dead one day. I freaked but then as soon as I dropped in a sinking pellet they sprung up and started eating. Now it never bothers me when they do that. One will occasionally lay on his back in his hiding spot.

    clowns actually do this to rest. just like a betta will lean atop a plant to take a break. Apparently they're well known for "playing dead" all 4 of mine do this constantly, and they are nocturnal so they are usually only super active at night or when the lights are out. Dont worry. as long as you dont see any visible problems like finrot, fungus, or ich... they're fine. Just keeping you on your toes. :)
