First fish is in....
A few weeks ago my fiance and I started a 20 gallon nano. We got our first fish yesterday, a very small clown obviously young, and a young multi color dottyback, also very young. We acclimated them for 2 hours drip method, and they are doing great. The only thing is our clown fish is being, well, a clown. He will not move away from the powerhead, he has been swimming towards it since he entered the tank, hasn't even checked any other part of the tank out. Is this odd behavior or is it normal, just seems odd to me.

It is odd, but I don't think you need to be worried. Watch it for the next couple of weeks to see if it continues to look and eat healthy, it is fine if it even keeps swimming into the powerhead.Stock the tank you have, not the tank you plan to have. Always have and use patience.

For those of you who want a SW tank and never have had one before or just starting out, read this blog entry from my blog on AC, it will give you a place to start.

He has began to search the tank still catch him swimming in the stream of the powerhead once in a while though. The dotty back is very shy and if you peak around the corner you can see him/her swimming but once you show yourself bam right into the rockwork. but otherwise they both eat well and are acting like "normal" fish.
