i do not think i can let her go

do you think there is anyway i could move the marron clown in with a pair of other clowns or find another marron that she will accept.i have had her for so long hate to have her go to the fish store just so i can have a pair in the 75.

I didn't think clowns were that agressive?

You could try introducing her to the tank and see how it goes...

If you introduce the new pair prior to adding the maroon, letting them get settled in, it may be doable.

thanks guys i have decided that if it does not work i need to find a good caring home for her she is a terrific fish and the only aggressive behavior i have ever seen is her protecting her little cave she adopted...so if it does not work know anyone that lives near waukesha wi that would take good care of her?

Check out the regional forums and see if there is one near you, or within reason. You might also consider starting your own regional forum, if you'd like to do that, shoot me or Aaron a PM and we'll set it up for you

One thing, mixing maroons with other clowns is almost always a bad choice. Maroons are one of the most aggressive clowns, only doing weel with themselves, yellowstripe maroons, and sometimes cinnamon or clarkes.

Clowns will also bump their agressiveness if there is an anenome in the tank. My maroon would hide from my hand if I had it in the tank. now that I have a host for it in a Bubble Tip the clown will attack my hand if its in the tank.

It will litrally come up and bite my hand. My clown is not large so it does not hurt butI have heard people tell of their maroons acutally drawing blood.

Not sure if it will help, we don't have a WI forum, but there may be something close enough to be doable.
