    I have two new perculas that are about an inch and a quarter. I took two out of a school of eight over at the store. I bought marine flakes and new life spectrum pellets but both seem too big for them to eat, although they still eat some of the flakes. So I found these 0.5 mm pellets online. I...

    I'm planning on getting a pair of clownfish once my tank finishes cycling but if I do get a pair, they will breed right? I don't want baby clownfish. What happens when they do have eggs and the babies then hatch and die, wouldn't that crash my tank? Also I was thinking about adding one...

    I have a older (big) saddleback clownfish that was moved out of my DT because it was becoming semi-aggressive towards the other fish. It has been living alone in the tank for about 30 days or so. Last week I put a new yellow tang in the tank because that seemed to be the only fish in my DT it...

    Stop, if you are going to tell me that the male is a mouth breeder and holds the eggs in his mouth till they hatch. l know that. He takes them in his mouth and holds them there for about 5 days then eats them. l read that this is common for his first batch until he learns. Well he hasn't...
