He's very aggressive and was hostile towards the maroon clown, so were taking him back this afternoon.
What other brightly colored fish can we put in our tank that WILL get along & be calm peaceful addition to our tank? We'd like to get something blue or yellow, maybe a tang?? We just don't want aggressive fish attacking each other because we have a 5 year old who's infatuated with the tank.
I have a coral beauty along with 2 yellow striped maroon clowns
they hang out together in their cave no issues at all
tangs require 75g or larger they also stress easy bringing in that horrible Ick issue
you don't want that in your tank
question on your coral beauty was it a young one or older one
older ones tend to be aggressive unless raised in a calm tank
he thinks he's one of them lol
