Please welcome Bob and Mel!

My newest additions to my tank!!!




They have both been eating like little pigs and are less than an inch long! I'm so excited! I love clownfish and they are the reason I finally decided to try saltwater. (sorry for the huge size of the pictures)


(and for those of you keeping track at home, they are named after Krusty's sideshow acts on the Simpsons. Bob is the one with more black on him, and Mel is more orange.)

I'll have to keep you posted on that one. They have managed to put a HUGE smile on my face as they've chased each other around the tank! Its so funny to see a little fish scared of a shrimp!

I haven't had much luck trying to identify it, I think its Gracilaria.

Either way I think its gorgeous! Its something I picked up during one of my excursions in the Rehoboth Bay in Delaware. It really holds its shape quite well in the aquarium.
Theres a slightly bigger view of it.

Steve, so far no rooting, I've only had it in there for a week. Unfortunatly no special lighting, just a baby step above the normal flourscent lights. I figure that if dies or is completly eaten, I'll just collect more (such a chore! Forcing me to go to the beach and go out on the boat! Oh please don't make me do it!)

Quarryshark, thanks a bunch! Words can't describe how excited I am to see them in the tank!!!
