My Clown is still alive from late 2007. My Sixline Wrasse would still be alive, but he was killed by a Niger Triggerfish I had a few months ago.

Unfortunately, I have lost fish other than the Wrasse.

I would consider Clowns to be hardy. I actually think that I read that Ocellaris are a little bit hardier than True Perculas. Mine isn't super big, and it really didn't grow a lot. It probably grew so slowly that I didn't even notice, lol. I do have another Clown in my 55g that is bigger than the one we are talking about though.

Bummer! What fish?

Ya, we assumed they were very slow growers. Maybe that is good though! We have a small little guy, so he probably wont be agressive to new fish!
