Update!! The clowns are back at my LFS even though the guy who works for the owner said it wasn't white spot I'm pretty confident it was. Still returned them with a credit note though.. Decided to wait for some onyx/snowflake clowns come in, IMO they are so much nicer than the standard occealaris

Yeah I agree with that!! But if they are wild they are more than likely to host an anemone? Tell me if I'm wrong but I'm sure that's correct

That is correct, however, there are no "snowflake" clowns in the wild. All these designer clowns are captive bred.

Better make a big hole in your wallet, designer clowns are not cheap. My LFS has some kind of designer clown that I can't remember the exact name of for $224.

Guess I'm lucky because my lfs has all clowns at $20. They get some designers in every now and then and it's a great deal. I'm not a big fan of them though. I just like the wild types.

It's alright for some! Great night at the pub for Olly! How is everyone??

It's so lucky you can get designer clowns so cheap! It is £60 for a pair of onyx clowns in England! Still waiting for snowflakes to come in to see how much they are!!

**TANK UPDATE**

The first corals are in!!! ))

A kenya tree as recommended!



Is the positioning of this okay?? All I could find is it likes medium light and low flow so stuck it in the bottom haha!

Got this little fella basically for free too, I'm sure it's a mushroom but does anyone have the proper name? And some info if the placement is okay on this one , thanks, Olly!

Kenya tree will literally grow anywhere you place it haha. The second pick looks like some type of leather coral to me

Anything in terms of placement? Shall I put it in a hole in the LR?
