    My clown fish have been together for over two years and have always gotten along. Last night the bigger of the two started bullying the smaller and now has it cowering in a corner. Every time it tries to come out the bigger one chases it back down. They live in a 90 gallon tank with only two...

    I have 2 smaller Ocellaris Clowns. They were the first fish in my tank and I have had them for about 2 weeks. One is slightly larger than the other and to my understanding, the larger is the female. they have been getting along fine up until about 3 days ago. I noticed the smaller one would...

    So I have a 90g set up and when I attempted to add a Mccosker's flasher wrasse they flipped out and relentlessly attacked him. They've shown aggression towards new additions in the past when they were in my 20g tank but it was never this bad. I was hoping that would change with their new bigger...

    Ok, so I think I might have screwed up. I had in my tank 2 Ocellris Clownfish, where one seemed to be a little bigger and chase the other one around a little (mostly when the slightly smaller one tried to go into an anemone). Today I bought 2 Golden Striped Maroons and almost right off the bat...

    ok, so I have tried doing some research on my own, but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for, so I'm here to ask you guys a question. I came home tonight to find my clown fish being somewhat pale and just kind of laying in the anemone. I put some food in, and at first they didn't go for...

    Ok, so earlier today I put up a thread about my missing clown who jumped to the back of my nano cube, well he's done it again. We just realized that everytime the lights go off(they're on a timer) the fish swim up to the very top of the tank near the back pump and twitching at each other while...
