Nice looking clowns! How are the chromis behaving like with them now, no issues? Reason I'm asking is because I am considering getting an ocelaris clown as my next fish to add with my four chromis and goby.

Thanks!

No issues whatsoever, they all get along just fine. The Chromis have been out more since I added the clowns as a matter if fact. At times all 4 of them get together and cruise around the tank, nice to watch
IMO I would say that adding an ocellaris with your Chromis & goby is a good move. Shouldn't have any problems

Ok, you've talked me into getting one now, might wait until after Christmas as the accounts have taken a bit of a pounding over the last few days from all this shopping lol. My chromis swim all over the place and never keep still. Don't know if it's because they get blown around from the powerheads or if that's what they're like.

The film is there because you aren't skimming off the top of your water, you have a canister. A skimmer probably won't help unless you can find one the allows water to be skimmed off the top of the water.

Do you have any PHs pointed at the water surface, disturbing the water surface and making ripples?

Yea I've got one PH which agitates the water surface pretty good. I believe its a Marineland maxi-jet 400

feather dusters?

I was thinking that I may add a feather duster... or two. How long should I wait before adding to my tank? tank has been up and running with fish in it for 3 weeks or so now. I read on live aquaria that your tank should be established before adding any feather dusters... any exceptions to this rule/guideline?
