    For the second time in my female clown's short life she has become widowed thru no fault of her own. She is a very good mate, but her males succumb to unfortunate accidents. Romeo got sucked into the overflow box a couple of days ago, and it was very sad on the whole family, any suggestions on...

    So we just upgraded our 20 gal to a 40 gal wide. Originally, in the 20 gal we had our pair of true perculas who we've had for about two years, are bonded and sexed, but have never spawned. We also were extremely lucky the other day when we stopped in at Petco and found two baby, unsexed nearly...

    I had a pair of snowflake clowns and the female took the plunge and died:bawling:. Totally sucks...she was beautiful (the one in the bottom corner of tank pic) and they were displaying all the good indicators of a mated pair. He's about an inch and she was a bit bigger but not much. So now I...

    I have an ocellaris clownfish and a true percula clownfish. Both are about the same size. I was wondering, could they possibly become a pair even though they're different?

    I just bought 2 false percula clownfish yesterday, both about 1.5-2 inches. They were swimming around and playing. I also noticed one was shaking every now and then. And this morning, the one that was shking is breathing kind of hard, and the other clown is chasing him around, not much though...

    So I need some advice. I have a little Ocellaris clown that I've had for about a year. He was about .75" when I got him and he's now nearing 2". I'm thinking I want to get a mate for him but I'm not sure how to go about doing it since I'm not positive on his age and if he's sexually matured...
