I don't think I am but apparently it's so. I just want a true percula that's <1". Because the current fish I have are fairly skittish and passive I don't need something at all agressive. So getting it small will be best and I want to raise it myself. Besides online I've seen one small enough for me at my LFS, but it was $30 (too much for a regular clown IMO) so I'll probably wait it out until I move to tallahassee and we're near The Clown hatchery so I can get a tank-bred one

I am a fan of black ice clowns though, but those designer clowns are too expensive for my taste.

In my black clown search I found a mated set of snowflakes for $550! Now thats crazy. I paid $40 each for my babies. They are ORA tank bred so they are very friendly and tiny too. I was looking to spend less as well but the search was getting crazy...

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Well to me $40 for black and white ocellaris sounds fair, not even ORA tank bred. Like I said though I like some of those designer clowns (Would love to have a platinum pair, but those are way too expensive and I'd be afraid of them dying) are nice looking, but I don't like them enough to pay like $100 each, even if they are a pair

I hadn't heard that before. really? :-( which would be better the sixline or the gramma? Those are the two I'm tossing around.

Thank you!

I'd say sixline, royal grams can be quite mean as well.

It's all about the fish you get really, not every one is going to be aggressive. My royal gramma and my sixline wrasse have never shown any aggression.

I think i would get the royal gramma if i were you, it would be more noticeable in your tank since it swims out front. Also the liveaquaria site says that the royal gramma is peaceful and the sixline is semi-aggressive.

I think i'm gonna go with the gramma. i am going to look at a 55g and 75g tomorrow so i can have even more fish!

So now what is suggested? I'm almost doubling my current size. Also, are there any small tangs out there? I saw one referenced once somewhere but cant remember.
I'd like one cool, reef safe centerpiece fish. Any suggestions?
