The thing I can't get over is how much food they will eat. THey will literally eat until it is impossible for them to eat anymore!!!

I gotta be careful!

even my Barbs never ate like that!

My percs do the same thing. They sleep in the return flow of the skimmer. And my saddle back looks like someone is bouncing him in an elastic string.

Clowns ALWAYS seem hungry. Whenever I lift the lid, they come right up and beg for food. Little piggies!

Mine swim around together all day. When it's time for bed, they seperate and take opposite corners on the top of the tank. I thought they were dying on the first day I got them. I checked out my tank in the middle of the night, and I found them both wiggling sideways in their corners. I panicked and turned the lights on, and they just started swimming like normal. I guess that's how they like to sleep. I hope they will host a BTA when I get one.

The first few days they slept together, now they are never together except the early mornings about 2 hours before lights on.

yeah, clowns are crazy. i have 2 tank bred percs, and the smaller one, used to swim like it was crazy. after a couple of months, he still swims that way, but at night, he decided to sleep inside the vegetable clip i put inside the tank. that, plus, everytime i clean the tank and siphon the substrate, he pecks at my hand incessantly.

be prepared for some weird but adorable stuff like this with your clowns, man
