? About adding clown, pics of skunk and unknown coral +more!

Well I had a few things so I just put it all in one post...

Anyone know what this coral might be? There are three that look like this. Maybe just really bleached out?

My new skunk cleaner who is doing really well still


The survivor. Although hurt she is still kicking.


RIP little buddy


What do you all think about me adding another very small clown tomorrow? Is the female already going to be territorial with being alone for one day? I really want a pair and I feel bad for the recent loss.

The unknown coral looks like aptasia. Remove it or watch it close. It can multiple over night and take over your tank. I would hold off on adding another fish until you are sure things are stable.

What is the best way to get rid of the aptasia?

Only reason I asked about the clown is becuase I heard you needed to add them together or they would fight later down the road.

Im also including pics of my clwon that survived and the wounds she has on her side.

Here is the pics of the wound. Anything I can do to treat this wound? I dont know if it was caused today or by something else. I dont remember it being there last night.

When you add a clown later just get one that is not similiar in size to your current one. As for the aptasia...If you only have a few just boil some water on the stove. Take the pot over to your tank and suck some of it up in a turkey baster and get right on top of the aptasia and squirt them. Some people swear by joe's juice but water is free.

The water will work great. No need for joe's juice. I used water in my tank and it took care of them. Peppermint shrimp will also eat them but they are not always interested in them.

was the water really hot? Did they "melt" when the water hit them? If so they will not be back.
