    Unhappy Big gold stripped maroon.

    he still hasn't eatten anything since i got him last saturday.. all he does is cuddle with the anemone.. and attack it and pound it into the substrate.. he pushes it so much he kicks up crushed coral substrate.. there is 2 big hoes around the anemone now lol.. where he wiggles his tail while pushing the anemone..

    anyhow i tried FD cyclop-eeze, Brine shrimp (frozen) home made food (scallops,nori,krill,Cyclop-eeze,fish) mixture.. with no success..

    he just looks at it and turns and pounds on anemone lol..

    any help would also be appreciated..

    your clown's behavior seems perfectly normal. I'd keep trying to let him eat. Often clowns come in from shipping with a bacterial infection in their gut- they either recover in about 3 weeks or they don't.....Your clown still seems to be active and vigorous, so it may pull through!
