    Question is why do Nems ball up? I know it is normal behavior. I have had my Ritteri for awhile now. Not my first ritteri, Tank params fine. Radion LED lights that I have been acclimating it to for the last 7 weeks. up to 80% intensity currently about 650-700 PAR. I last fed it about a week ago...

    Hi all, Just looking for a bit of info. My condalyctus anenome is now hosting my 2 clownfish. I was told this is rather rare as they are tank bred clowns. The female is lying in the centre of the anemone most of the time. Is this normal? Is seems well but rather strange. Any advice...

    About 2 months ago, I added a Green bubble tipped anemone(5-6")the aquarium and ensured that he acclimated and was in good shape. I added a maroon clown (about 2 1/2" long), He the anemone hosted him about 3-4 days later and they became best of buds. The issue is, he goes crazy with his...

    Finally got a new bubble tip anenome in my tank and added a Maroon Clown 4 it. LFS suggested the clown for my anenome, and live aquaria too but a friend who worked at one of those aquarium ship sites (saltwaterfish.com) says he won't. Granted it's only been like 5 days and I think the...

    I have a percula clown fish and I have had it about 3 weeks now. About 5 days ago I came home and the clown fish was in my sebae anemone. It seemed as if the fish was going to host the anemone. When I woke up the next day the clown wasn't on the anemone and hasn't gone back to its since. Is...

    ok, so my dumb clownfish started to host my duncans, but i don't think he realizes that they are way too small for him so he is really awkward around them and its really funny to watch. Ill try and post a video a little later, cant get it to work right now

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/01/clownfish-sea-anemone-wiggle-dance_n_2789711.html Good read about their relationship. Might also clear up the very common misconception that the fish is the host.

    About 3 weeks ago I bought a hammer coral. It has been acting normal(opening during the day with sweeper tentacles and closing at night). About 1 week ago I added a pair of clownfish that seem to host to it immediately. Over the past week the hammer coral has not been opening much. I thought the...

    So I just bought a LTA yesterday and put it in my tank. Its about 10" across and really pretty, light orange with green colored highlights in actinics. After I put it in I noticed that he came with an anemone crab. Cute lil booger and a nice hitchhiker. So this was my plan after talking to...

    I purchased an anemone today and was told that it will host my two Austrailian Clowns and I was trying to do some research on what it is, and now I am not quite sure that it is all that safe for my clowns. I have some pictures posted and would love some help! Thanks!

    Hi, I bought 2 clownfish and a torch coral today, they are now the first things in the tank and I was wondering how long it would take for the clownfish to host the coral, Thanks.

    So I just got a galaxy frag and my clown has been eyeballing it, should I be worried?? I have read that the galaxy can pack a punch and even kill clowns but then I have seen videos of clowns hosting galaxies with no problem.
