Those cute little Clowns can be sooo mean. Good idea about the new one to get time to establish itself. I would wait a couple weeks - like a QT amount of time.

Yeah, they're intense little fish! I will definitely wait a bit! Thanks!

But that won't make the new, smaller one overly confident though, right? I wouldn't want him to try to take on the larger, more agressive female...I Wouldn't think so.

If he is really small it is possible a she and the bigger one would whip her into place I think. Pick a day to introduce when you can be home all day to observe.

Someone got a new fish today! I looked at the Clownfish but none of them fit the bill for what I was looking for. I ended up purchasing a Yellow Tang! I've always wanted one, but haven't had one before. He/she is doing great in acclamation now, looks chubby and healthy! Bright yellow! I'll post pictures later!

I do have some unfortunate news guys. The Yellow Tang passed on Thursday. He seemed to have been declining since I brought him home on the Saturday before, not quite sure why...he looked great in the store, but started to not look so hot after being in the tank for a few days. Right now I am just manually adding ammonia to keep the bacteria going in the tank, as he was the only fish.

Sorry....the one update I post in a while has to be a bad one. Hopefully the next one will be better.

Thank you so much everyone for following, I TRULY appreciate it a lot. It's so much fun to chat with other hobbyists that are as into fish as I am.

Sorry the yellow didn't work out. I was like that with my tomini. Great fish.

I would humbly recommend a easier test fish. Tangs on a good day take special care and environment.
