We bought 5 clowns yesterday and they are currently in a quarantine tank - hexagonal and quite tall. We've noticed that they seem to spend a lot of time energetically shimmying up and down the height of the tank tumbling over each other. We gave them some food and they ate enthusiastically - continuing to grub about and then shimmying again. They appear to have completely ignored the small plant pot we put in to give them a hide away cover. Is this normal or are they stressed?
