    so a couple of days ago i found that my tiniest clown fish had jumped out of the water...and him and the other clown where always near the top of the tank and wouldn't go down..anyways now i got another one and they're getting along great only problem is that my old clownfish still won't get away from the top. The new one is moving around more but keeps going up to the top to see the other guy

    so im wondering why are they...or at least one always staying at the top?

    also, i have a bubble tip nem and was wondering how to get them to host it?

    Not terribly unusual behavior for a clown. They can do this if they feel more secure in a given area and it is especially frequent if they are being bullied by something. Keep an eye out for the latter.

    there is only one other goby in the tank and he is mainly always in his cave, or around the area of it so i can't see him bullying them. Thanks for letting me know it's not unusual though, i was worried.
