Regarding the clown tank idea...I like the idea. I'm trying to find a cool Clown pair for my 60g. These are pics I've found, just not sure what the last two are. The first are Stubbies.

Honestly, I think it's a bad idea to but GMO fish... The poor guys have had their spines taken out or shortened so they can't grow. Just sad IMO...

Now Designer clowns can be pretty cool, and since they aren't really GMO'd I think it's ok...

I thought Stubbies were just genetically different. I've never really researched them.

I'm not a fan of most designer clowns , but those last two, especially the middle one, are pretty different, IMO.

From what I've read and heard they are modified to be that way, though I may be wrong..

It's not to say that I like the way the designers look, but they aren't modified to be that way.

I dont know the stubbies look a little odd to me lol. I'm a little odd though so I dont know. lol

I have run the tao's over other tanks too and didnt like them then either. I just figured it would be different over the 180g. I only paid like $380 for the three panels a few months ago so its not alot of money lost, I can maybe get $200 on craigslist in this area. Dont wanna be without a light though so I will try to scrape together the $250 and then sell off the panels when the corals improve. I just hate seeing them this way. The toadstool breaks my heart.

Lemme see is if I can find any pictures of the 125g, I have so darn many.....

The ORA website says that the Stubbies are born lacking vertebrae, so it is a naturally occurring "deformity". They are apparently healthy and are just a rarity that they sometimes find. I agree that they are pretty odd looking, but I kinda like the oddball look.

They breed the "deformed" fish with each other to pass the genes on.

Careys Tank(s) Lots of Pictures, Questions & Thoughts

No way that is naturally occurring. If it was natural selection would breed that trait right out of the gene pool as those clowns would not last long. Definitely a result of inbreeding and human intervention. The other ora clowns are great and just bred to have nice colors. The stubbies not so much.

But we are off topic now and not focusing on Carey's awesome tanks! Sorry Carey!

Completely true, there isn't a way. But we are very off topic..

Carey- Is the toadstool normally very colored up? I've never had one, so I can't judge whether it's doing well or not...
