We have live rock and some soft mushroom and buttons in the tank that came with the live rock. My wife REALLY wants a clownfish hosted...

    I've had a clownfish in my 90 gal tank for about 8 months. About a month ago, I added 2 blue chromis and 1 green chromis. The clownfish likes to host quite a few of the corals in the tank, but lately I've noticed that one of the blue chromis is getting very close to the clown. I've actually seen...

    My maroon clownfish has recently begun hosting a good number of my corals. He darts around rubbing against my two hammer corals, my frogspawn, galaxia and pulsing xenia. Is there anyway to get him to stop?

    So I have two clown fish who I think have been spawning. They swim around and around each other and then they twitch and shake together. They're always together swimming and sleeping. How should the environment be? I have three LR in the tank to make a nice cave and that's it. Other than a...

    I have 2 ocellaris clowns that are extremely aggressive. They are in a 20G tall tank and have 3 nems to play around in. This weekend I went and got a watchman goby and a pigmy angelfish and both of them got dominated and are now dead. Is there anything I can do to curb this problem? I'd like to...

    Received my new GBTA today from vivid aquariums. It's and absolute beauty and before I could even put it down the maroon was introducing itself to the nem in my hand. It is bubbling up nicely and has beautiful pink tips. The picture isn't great but when he really bubbles up I'll update the post.

    So my clown was acting perfectly fine and eating today. Then I did some reaquascaping and cleaning and then the lights went out. Well, a few min later, I turned the lights back on and propped up a fallen coral and then turned the lights back on. So I left the tank and an hour or so later came...
