Little bugger has now disappeared, can’t see him so he hiding somewhere , I’ve checked all round floor just in case and he’s not in the filter ,
He can’t jump out anyway the tank has a full fitted lid .
Do they bury themselves or something anyone know or got any answers .

Firefish can be pretty nervous (especially at first). They normally find a cave or other bolt hole to hide in, so probably somewhere in the rockwork (apparently the 'shark fin' helps to anchor them to the roof of caves)

They'll find or make a cave!

They're great fish, I love mine.
My stupid clownfish bullied him when I first added him and bust his tail up, now he darts back into his cave whenever she is nearby.

I’m thinking something yellow next fish wise , canary wrasse maybe ,
Do like the yellow tangs though but bit worried it might feast on me corals .
Thinking less is more so by adding the bright different coloured fish ( got to be peaceful ) they all will have room to swim about
And I’ll have an explosion of colours.
Any ideas on bright coloured peaceful fish that will get along with what I got already.

Pyramid Butterfly could be an option? (unusually a reef safe butterfly!)

May I ask what light settings you have which seem to really bring out the orange in your clowns?

How big is the tank?

Yellow tang should be okay with corals, but as Hawaii doesn’t export these are becoming very expensive. Same for flame angel (but probably higher risk of nipping coral)

A royal gramma brings out colour, but mine also hides a lot.

I have a canary blenny that is always out and gives nice yellow colour addition.

Foxface is also yellow and out a lot.

It’s 23w white and blue led at the moment nothing fancy ,
Am looking into lighting at the moment weather to go with a stronger wattage blue or go full spectrum.
Also toying with the idea of swapping the white for a yellow .
All ideas welcome on lighting as well as this can be a minefield getting it right

Not a massive Tank but It’s the right size for what I want to achieve .
Probably only put about another 3 maybe 4 fish in it don’t want a overcrowded Tank ,
