    Hi I sadly had one of my Darwin clowns jump out of my tank and die. It was part of a pair. Can I get another clown and will they pair up? Would it have to be another Darwin clown or could I get any clown?

    Hi all, I was wondering about adding a second clown fish to pair with my first (who I've had for about 9 months). The clown is a little snippy - she seems to get along well with the six line wrasse (they always swim together) and sometimes nips at the firefish, but not always. I was speaking...

    Hello all! My girlfriend and I have been on the lookout for a pair of clowns hosting a nem and finally came across one at the LFS. I'll admit it was a bit of a hasty decision but I'm hoping it will all pull through. So far, the anemone has stuck to the back wall and is basically at the water...
