    Sooo I got two clowns, one black and one orange and the orange one is chasing and bullying the black clown round the tank. How can I make the paring faster and not have to take the clown out the tank?

    Hi all, Recently I posted a thread of how to get my clowns into my BTA. With some upset to their "home" (aka the overflow corner) the female finally took a liking to the Nem. However, that was about 2 weeks ago and the male has not followed her. Now she chases him away from the Nem everytime he...

    Hey guys, I've had my reef tank up and going for close to 2 months now and it seems to be doing great. The cycle went well taking roughly 3 weeks with dead live rock, live sand and bio-spira. Got a protein skimmer hooked up, GFO, and a small media bag for carbon. Been doing weekly water changes...

I have a regular clown fish, a small puffer, a adult damsel and a baby damsel also in the tank. They tend to get along but my problem is this. The PB...

    I have tank-bred spotinchus clownfish and sebae anemone. I had the spotinchus clownfish for 5 months and the sebae for 6 days. When I got home from work, I saw my female clownfish goes into sebae anemone and not my male clownfish. I was happy but later at night, I saw my female clownfish stop...

    Hey Y'all! I recently bought a snowflake clown to go with my regular ocellaris. The ocellaris is named Creamsicle by the way - my favorite fudge flavor. However, I can't seem to come up with a good name for the Snowflake. The two clowns are now best buds, and even seem to be making a...

    Hi all. I've dreamed for many years of having a reef tank. It's finally happening, and I was beyond thrilled to get my first inhabitants yesterday: four clowns. They are beautiful and fun to watch. Here's my question: they seem to spend most of their time in a small clot in one specific corner...

    My clownfish have been hanging out on the rock above my goby and pistol shrimps home. Last night my goby came all the way out of his burrow. My clownfish bit off the tip of my gobys fin! Luckily my pistol shrimp came out and scared off the clownfish. But they haven't left the borrow since. Will...

    I was wondering if there is anything besides coral/anome clownfish will house. If not, are they any corals they will house that rely on photoshnisis or eat frozen brine shrimp.
