Unhappy Clown Fish Went Sky Diving

So this morning I woke up and I found it on the floor dried up and dead. My first casualty, I don't know what made it do it but I think it might have been fighting with the smaller clown and thought he would go for a dive before continuing the beat down she was giving him every day. Any how my kids where pretty upset about the whole thing this morning so I kind of felt bad.... But you win some you lose some... I guess I'll be in the Market for a new pair and take the one I have back to the LFS for credit....

I don't think it was the calcium levels... They just been fighting because the larger one is Establish her domenecs over the smaller one.... I've always had high calcium levels since I've have them for over 8 months and never have they tried to jump out before... But it was the larger female to jump out...

Your really don't have to take the one that is alive back to the lfs, If you have a large one then get one that's alot smaller. The large one is the female and a smaller one will remain a male. Try to make a screen cover for your tank. Lots of ideas on the net as to that.

Yeah. I was going to buy the Egg Crate the other day but I passed on it to save money now I have one dead fish and one lonely one.... He is a small fellow I will eventually take him back I was not really a huge fan of the O. Clown. I will get either a pair of B&W Clowns or 2 Onyx Clown pairs....
