Clowns truly are damsels

My pair is really starting to annoy me :p they're fat, healthy, and have a heck of a personality. Unfortunately, they're a pain. I can't feed my corals without them picking at the mysis, even from closed duncan heads. They even torment inverts. I had added a peppermint shrimp yesterday and they swam right for it, haven't seen it since. I swear I don't know if I'm dealing with clowns or oscars. I mean, I could trade the pair for a brand new younger pair but I love my 4" clowns. I just wish they were a little nicer :p

Wow.. And they're 4"? Fish are all different.. You may have just gotten some bullies, which wouldn't surprise me at that size

Practically, I mean they're not under 3" that's for sure. I had bought them from a feller reefer who had them given to him. They've got to be at least 3-4 years old. I don't think I'd have the heart to give them away. I think they're even hosting my hairy mushrooms.

Sure they aren't clarkii's? Clarkii's get big and I've seen them be a little more aggressive
