    I recently got a 20 gallon tank and will begin to cycle soon, I am still planning but have my heart set on putting a pair of clownfish in. Will any more than the clownfish and CUC be overstocking or no. Thanks

    I had a few questions about my tanks, considering I have lost 2 fish in 2 days. I have a 48gal tank that currently houses 1 black ocellaris clown, and 2 yellow tail damsels. When setting up my tank I added in the two damsels and then 2 weeks following I added a ocellaris clownfish. It never ate...

    Hi all, I introduced 2 ocellaris (a black and white and standard, both juveniles). About three days ago to a fully cycled tank. They hid for the first few hours and are now exploring, are responsive to me, and began eating the first day. So far, they've spent most of their time side by...

    I have 25 gallon reef tank with clownfish pair and cleaner shrimp. 2 weeks ago I was gone out of town for 3 days. When I came back, I couldn't find any bta anywhere in my tank. It has been missing for more than 2 weeks. Last week I tried to look underneath all of the rock and change the...

    Good Morning to all, I presently have two reef tanks, a 45 gal and a 37 gal. I have had the 45 gallon for 5 years now with a Bi Color Angel and a Maroon clown fish (only fish in the tank). They have been together now for 4 years. I set up the 37 as a AOI in February of this year and have 2...

    Hi Everyone! I currently have a pair of tank raised ocellaris clownfish in my 75 gallon reef tank. I love them, but I desperately want them to host my RBTA and they show no interest in it. I also have my eye on a pair of gold stripe maroons that are already hosting a RBTA. If I wanted, I could...

    I have ocellaris clownfish about 4 months old with me. I purchased another fish last thursday because the last male fish committed suicide by jumping out of the tank in the middle of the night. It has been 5 nights and 4 days. Someone told me that color of clownfish is sick because it lack of...

    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...

    Hello all, I have a 40 gallon salt water tank that has been established for about 2 years now.

    I just have noticed that my regular occelaris clownfish (orange and white) have grey spot on his body near the tail. I'm not sure what it is. Can someone tell if my clownfish is sick? If so, how to treat him?

    Hey, I know it's normal for the dominant female to put the male in his place but my male is like always hiding away because she beats him up so much. When I feed, every time he goes for food, she banishes him to his little cave. I make sure to spread the food so everyone gets a chance to eat and...

    I picked up two tank bred ocellaris clowns from the LFS on Saturday, and one of them isn't looking too good. There are tiny white dots on its head and body, but they aren't in the same spots now and look sort of like bubbles? When I turned on the light in the morning, it came to this position in...

    I have bought 2 clarkii clownfishes from lfs yesterday. They both are fine until at night. I notice that one of the clownfish's tail has been split into two. I was worry then I checked online and the tail should be fix in couple of days so I felt ease at that moment. Later on, when I went to...

    Last week I got a yellow goby, and within a couple of days of being in the tank, he was covered in little bumps. I didn't have a quarantine tank for him, and he was in a tank with designer clownfish, so being only a £9 fish I opted for the somewhat brutal approach and just took him out. The...
