Thanks Paul! I never realized how small those hermits really are...

Few questions though.

1. Where can I get some more shells for the hermit so he can choose?

2. What do you feed your clowns? Mine didn't really like frozen bloodworms and I don't want to stay with flakes.

You can usually get empty shells from the LFS, you may have to ask. Try frozen mysis shrimp for the clown, if that don't work you have a picky clown which usually is bit the case.

Can get empty shells from the bottom of my tank. I wish I could get rid of all of them. Always pulling them out.

Thanks going to snoop around and see if I can find my some shrimp. Hopefully he won't eat the real shrimp one day though 😦

Mysis is sold at the pet store in the frozen food section, I'd alot smaller than your shrimp. I usually go with San Francisco Bay Brand because it is usually available and a great product IME/IMO. I steer clear of the omega one frozen and others with the gel binders.

Great to know. My freshwater fish love the omega one bloodworms and that's what I tried with him. He didn't like it so the Jack Dempsey ate them for him.

Speaking of him? How do you sex clowns? Just out of curiosity.

Don't know this one. I usually assume the female is the largest in the pair, singly I couldn't tell them apart in any way.
