Clown fish swimming with its head down and tail up why?????
My uncles black clown fish just started swimming with its head down and tail up.
He's missing his rear fin( my uncle brought him like that)
He's had him for over a year now. The only change that he did was remove him from his 28 cube to a 72 bow front.
Anyone know why??

Did you make sure that all water parameters are in check... ammonia, nitrite, salinity, etc...
Has he always been swimming normally without his tail?
if the water quality if right, he could be adjusting to the new tank... clowns always have weird personalities... mine floats on top of the water while he's sleeping thought he croaked that morning i saw him.

this happened to my wrasse when i first introduced him into my new set up. my temperature did swing a lot and the cause of this was a swim bladder disease, eventually when the temperature settled he fought it and is now back to normal. make sure all your params are stable

I don't even understand what OP is trying to say. Swimming down with tail up? That's what they usually do...?
PM me on how to SAVE MONEY on Electric and Gas!
