If it's truly only 5 weeks old then I believe it's an Ocellaris. Percs don't grow that fast. Or, perhaps someone has a secret for growing them out faster.

I'm going with Ocellaris as well. As far as clown/anenomes pairing hosting goes...you just never know. Even with wild caught clowns it is not 100%. Some do, some don't. I do not think it is as much of an "instint" thing as it is a "received threat" threat thing. In the wild clowns use anenomes for protection. In an aquarium, most threats are just not present so the clown feel no need to seek refuge in the anenome. I think the instint will alway be there. My clowns go into my anenome, torch coral, hammer coral, hairy mushrooms, and toadstool. they are very funny fish.

They are tiny little guys. The bigger one I have is about an inch the smaller one is about 3/4. They are pretty funny to watch just bob around on top of the PVC pipes it there QT.

I'm from Syracuse and the only 2 LFS stores I normally go to are Fairmount Aquarium and The Reef Zone. Both are nice but just rows of tanks on metal stands. I heard great things about the Rochester area LFS and was blown away by both The Reef Shope and Caribian Forest. Both stores are simply stunning. Plus the Reef Shope had a little dog running around, he was alot more personable then the cat at my normal LFS.

Quick Question.

I've been feeding them so theres just a couple of extra flakes. However it seems that within a few hours they are hungry again. I'll throw another pinch in and they'll gobble it up/

Because of there small size should I be feeding them multiple times a day or will once suffice?

i feed mine 2 or three times a day, just smaller portions more often instead of just one big feeding. they seem to like it better this way.

I feed my juvenile fry 3 or 4 times a day. Once they're over 1.5" it doesn't matter much even once every other day will do. If you're looking for breeding condition continue the 3 or 4 times a day indefinately.
