Im a little confused here. Are you telling me this in refrence to something i said or just giving me facts about these fish. Just trying to figure out tje context behind this post.
I only want one pair of clowns. So there wont be any other clowns for them to pick on. And the madirian is a long term project. I plan on putting copepods on the mt and in the fuge/sump and letting the population grow for 6-9months before adding the fish. This isnt a fish to get as soon as the cycle is done.
