Clowns are indeed damsels so yep, they can be aggressive. Thats why I stuck with regular oscellaris, they are supposed to be less mean than the percs and other strains. I also heard that the best chance for them to all get along was if I didnt mix species. I had the b&w's since my first tank. they were my first fish. i added the orange ones about 2 months ago. They got along fine for over a month then all heck broke loose. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Has the pr you added to the 125 found something to host?

Nope not yet. I have several things that could interest them too. lol I had enough of hosting though, they almost killed my elegance coral. :-( They seem very happy to just bodysurf all day in the return stream. Thats literally all they do all day long, back and forth six feet. They must be getting some workout. hehe

I was thinking as long as theyre not hosting, you could prob move some rock and add some juveniles they wont pair, but would allow you to have more, they should become a family at that point.

I still have the agressive two left, the b&w's were the ones getting terroized. They were only put back in the 125g cause they were harassing a yellow watchman in the cube, so I wouldnt risk these two with any other smaller fish. I was planning on not adding any fish to the 125g after the deaths in there but I had to in this case. I was waiting til august to begin restocking if everything stayed disease free.

I dohave hopes to get one more pair though. Just not sure which ones and where they will go. lol

Another pr wouldnt be a good idea bit theyd probably adopt some juves. Just saying, iits your tank, and if it doesnt feel right, dont do it.

Yep, I think I may be out of the woods as far as disease. It's been at least a month I think since the outbreak that killed my babies. I'm gonna give it a few more weeks probably to be sure before I add again.

I'm pretty pleased with the 125g as of now, just needs more fish LOL. I only have 3 that swim around in that huge tank. I also have scoped out some new corals to add so hopefully I can do that soon.

I'd say if you still have some livestock in the 125 and added a clownfish pr that haven't caught any disease, you're good to go....but I can understand the rather be safe than sorry part

Well I don't think it's ich or velvet now, BUT I'd like to wait out their life cycle just to be sure.

I guess the next question is gonnabe what do I stock? I'm thinking 3 Blue reef chromis to start. I'd like one more tang, just can't decide and it would have to look nothing like the yellow one I have already, she's the ruler of that tank. lol

I'm tossing around ideas like anthias, jawfish and another goby, a sand sifter probably. Other than that, I can't think of anything. hehe but I'm sure that will change.
