Death of a tankmate

My tomato clown died last nite. He was the first fish I got when I started this Hobby 12 yrs ago. He will be sorely missed. He shared in all of my SW aquarium adventures.

Sorry to hear about that clown Mike. I know it is was one of your pride and joy's in the aquarium. Considering they have a 6 - 10 year lifesapn in the wild and half of that in the home aquarium, it just time. It will be missed in your tank shots.

Sorry for your loss. 12 years is a long time. I can only hope I have as much success with the lifespan of my fish as you do.

You should be proud to have kept him/her for so long. I know it is hard to loose a fish after so long but he was 12. Thats great for a clown fish. He couldn't have been better kept.

Thanks everyone. I`m getting another clown as I cant imagine a reef without one. Going to go with a gold striped maroon. I had one for many yrs but died about 4 yrs ago. He was eight yrs old. I`ve always had a clown in my tank. As I said I cant imagine life without one.
