I just had to share my news! My pair of false percula clownfish have FINALLY started hosting my bubble tip! I have had the clowns for almost two years and they were hosting a torch coral. I finally got them a bubble tip about seven months ago and I gave up the thought of them...
I'm sorry, this question has probably been asked over and over but I haven't found what I need searching through past posts. The more I read, the more confused I get. So many choices and it seems like there isn't a general consensus on what works best. Before going out and spending money on...
Long time lurker, first time poster here.
I've had my tank running for about 6 months (converted to SW from FW after my 4 year old pumped a few squirts of hand soap into my tank :rolleyes:) and I've got some questions...but I guess I'll start with some basic info...
Ok, so I have decided to do a build post. I plan to keep softies in this tank, and the LR I got has some beautiful mushrooms and kenya trees. Here is what I have:
- 20g Long tank
- 25lb Caribsea Caribbean LS
- ~25lb Beautiful LR (from Jojon60)
- Orbit 65W Dual Actinic lighting
This thread was started in the GRD area and got moved for me by Whiskey (Thank you). After finding and reading the rules, I came back to edit this post to list what my plans are for contents.
It is a 12G Nano tank kit from Instant Ocean.
A Blue Damsel (Because I think they...
Hey, just ordered my new 220 for delivery on the 17th, and being new to the hobby (saltwater at least) wanted to make sure my fish selections wont find their tankmates an expensive live food....:freak:
here is my fish list as of now, feel free to destroy it in any way deemed necessary!:
Okay it is official, my 90 gallon build starts today. My stand came in today and I picked it up after work. :dance:
Here is the plan for the tank:
90 Gallon AGA tank w/offfset overflow
Custom Oak Stand and Canopy
40 Gallon AGA sump
6X54W Sunlight Supply Tek T5HO
Octopus Needlewheel 200 w/gate...
Okay I am back again but this time its about my new false percula clownfish. Now the trouble is that it wont really move from a certain spot and it eats a tiny bit (maybe one mouth full ). Do you think I should get another clownfish? I just got it a 3 days ago so would it be safe to add another...
1.) Buy the Hood from LRN (done)
2.) Buy skilter 400 ( other reasons for this.. relax guys)**1
3.) Buy 50# of Marco Rock
- epoxy the rocks with plenty of swim throughs, places for coral
and easy to clean around
4.) Fill the tank and fire it off.. let it cycle.
5) begin the build on...
Need to break down our 90 gallon tank. Approx. 75lbs of live tonga ridge rock, 2 false percula clown fish, skunk cleaner shrimp, two brittle stars, one "regular" star fish, turbo snails, margarita snails, blue-legged hermit crabs, one fighting conch, cerith snails, live sand.
I am selling my 5 month old reef setup.. I have over 4 thousand invested.. but my loss is your gain.. like I said it is all besides the tank and stand 5 months old..
some of the equipment:
Live rock 3.50 per pound or all rock for $600.00
coral rock mostly mushrooms $5.00 per pound
Just want to get a feel for how much interest there is. My husband and I decided, reluctantly, to sell off our tank. We travel too much to adequately take care of it. It's a 90 gallon tank in a stand, under tank sump, RO/DI setup, turbofloater 1000 skimmer, approx 100 lbs of nice rock, lots of...

I've seen many articles stated that a False Percula Clown Fish will grow up to 3.5".. But some ppl suggested that their clowns grown over 4"? and the males are only stay small about 1.5"?
Is this sound right? False clown owners please post your fish size here..
I am taking down my tank and have a few fish that I need to sell. I have a False Percula Clown and a 4 strip damsel (which I am sure no one wants) and one Haitian Anemone (its kind of a light brown and white color). I would like to get a few bucks for them so make me an offer. They really need...
I got a pair of false Percula Clown fish and they are both less than 1.5". How can it possble to pair up at such early stage? Are they going to grown anymore?
For fresh water fish, they need to become adult before started to form pair and mate.
Any idea? Thanks
Okay, so for fish this morning I had a four stripe damsel and two false percula clownfish. Recently I noticed that the smaller of the two clownfish had what looks like a bite out of his fin so I had been monitoring him. It looks a little white around the nip and I was a bit scared of it getting...
