    I had a long time resident(5yo Black Onyx Percula) jump today and the cat got him. I'm in need of a good, safe place to purchase a replacement. I prefer a breeder since they have not been exposed to disease.

    Hello Everyone, I have two Black Perculas that I guess can host to a Bubble Tip. We have had both in the tank for sometime now and the clows have no interest in the anenome. This is normal I hear but something very interesting happened. Lastnight the electricity went out and the tank went...

    Can you make a bonded pair with a true percula & a black percula, or will they fight?

    I have a new percula and he is about twice the size of my little percula. They did fine Saturday night but Sunday night my little percula (Nemo) quit sleeping and hovering around the large statue of nemo that is in the tank. He has always done that since we got him a few months ago. Now the new...
  9. The THINK Tank
    Alright, so I've had a 30 gallon reef tank (or what will eventually be one) running for two months. I first got a small percula (a juvenile) and two chromis fish. After a few weeks I introduced a convict tang with no problems. I have two anemones, one of which I was never told the name and the...

    I have a pair of true perculas. The female has been a jumper for YEARS! She has only hit the floor twice (just after someone gets home). Normally she ends up in the rear compartments of the tank. This last time she jumped, I figured I would just leave her back there (plenty of room to...

    I have no idea what clownfish I should get for the new tank! I am so tired after not seeing fish for 3 months that I am just about to go to the LFS and pick up a pair of tiny ocellaris clowns to be hosted by my hairy mushrooms while I work on getting the tank stable for a saddle anemone. What...

    Hi, I'm hoping to be starting a FOWLR tank soon, or maybe even just live rock with some small shrimp or asterina stars. I'm going to be getting a tank somewhere between 20 and 30 gallons. (Right now I'm looking at a hexagonal 25 gallon, but I'm not sure if it is gone or not. I'm looking to buy a...

    I need some advice for what looks to be a sickly false perc. He was eating right from my hand earlier in the night, picking at the flakes and eating like a pig. When I went to look at the tank with the actinics on later in the night, I noticed he was basically lying on the SB, barely moving and...

    I have a pair of percula clowns, not quiet mated yet;). But the bit larger one(soon to be female) is constantly harassing the littler one, the soon to be male. But sometimes when she does harass him, she looks like she's flinching or twitching, turing to her side and freaking out. Is this common...

    so my mated pair percula clown fish had been hosting in a bubble tip anemone, they loved the thing, the minute they saw it in the tank they ran (swam) to it, but it met is unfortunite demise...:( my clownfish haven't been the same since, they hide in the back and I have been wanting to get them...
  16. Reef Fish
    I did have a clark clown fish in my 72 gallon, but I moved it into a 10g refugium underneath the big tank to make a nice environment for two new black ocellaris clowns. They seem to be doing fairly well (the clark, also), but I am concerned that they might get exhausted fighting the flow...

    My Percula has been "cuddling" one certain rock in my tank. To describe it better, he looks like he lies on the rock then goes into spasms/fits, which it does on both sides. The clown has also done it when another fish swims past. Is the clown just being protective of its rock and treating it...

    I need help ID'ing a true perc strain. I have no picture, but i will be as specific as possible. It had red eyes, like that of a maroon. it was more reddish hued than orange the LFS said it was taken from some island, something "saint". like "St. so and so island" It was more expensive than...
  20. General Reef Discussion
