LOL, I never claimed to know it all. I am just an amateur at reef keeping truly.

Here's what ocellarisclownfish.com has to say...

"So in the most general sense, if you have a very young clownfish, it is likely neither male nor female. If you have one clownfish that is a bit older or has been by itself for some time then it is likely a female. If you have more than one, then the female will be larger and more aggressive. The next most aggressive will probably be male and the rest will most likely either be males or juveniles."

I agree with ocellarisclownfish.com, females are larger and more aggressive and if you have two females the dominant one will change to a male.

Well guys it's coming up on the first water change for little Saurus the clown. Got a question I'm probably just really overthinking.

My tank is due for a top off but I plan on a water change tomorrow prob or Saturday. If I don't top off the tank and add straight new saltwater will it mess up the salinity? Or do I need to top it off with RODI then do the water change?

Yep probably seriously overthinking but I'll ask anyway to be sure.

How much water is missing from evap?
You can just mix new water a little lite.
How do you test your sg?
If using a refractometer(think you are?) then you can easily track tank and new water(simple math don't overthink).
Be careful if using a hydrometer as they swing literally!
I let my tanks swing pretty good with evap as I have large sumps and do not even desire an ATO, and my stock doesn't seem to notice at all.

It's a 10g tank no sump lol. Probably only a gallon missing. I planned on changing two a week.

Yes I went ahead and dished out for a nice refractometer

Done some searching on reef central and have what I think is 2 possibilities.

Spaghetti worm -OR- vermetid snails. Not really sure which though.
