Added another pepp. shrimp, 1 emerald crab and a pulsing xenia frag. Will get pics when I do my water test hopefully on Tuesday. Put order in for 2 juvenille clarkii clowns. Hoping they come in the week of June 7th.

My tank is glass, and even have CC as my substate. I'll keep that in mind when I clean the glass again !!
Yes, wait until you do a PWC, then use that water to clean and scrub that HA off the rock.

One that holds water, and stays warm.

Firsty Fish !!

Added a 1" gold striped maroon clown !!



You can also see my small Xenia frag !!

Small FTS shot after alittle redecorating-


Did my weekely water test after my skimmer was off all weekend due to in-laws staying in my man cave. They couldn't sleep with the skimmer on....sissys

PH- 8.2
Ammonia- 0
Nitrite- 0
Nitrate- 5-10ppm
SG- 32 or 1.024

Question though, since I've added the gold striped, can I add a white striped maroon, or do they both need to be gold stripped ?? Searched online about it but no answer. I understand that they both need to be the same size, of the white striped needs to be a tad small.

The gold striped maroon is a very aggressive clown. I would not add the white stripe one because there will be aggression.

even at the age/size he is now ?? I was assuming that since they were both "maroon" clowns they could become a pair in my tank. so no white striped maroon, but its safe to add another gold striped ??

Got a 1 inch gold stripe maroon and a three inch white striped maroon in my tank. It was touch and go for the little guy for a while as he got his fins nipped by the bigger white stripe . No aggression at all from the yellow stripe. Paired up nicely now.

Ducati thanks for the heads up. I've called around to 4 LFS in my area, and got 2 responses. The "sure can, its a clown" and the "I won't even do that in our display tanks" But one did say that if the fish get nasty, I can always return a maroon.

I'm going to try my luck with it. Hope for the best right ??

not much going on here. added some zoas and a clove polyp frag. my not so local lfs (40 minute drive) had a 50% off ALL coral sale for a week !! too bad i only get a $35 dollar allowance each week for my tank...( its a good thing, we wouldn't be able to pay the mortgage if she didn't give me limits ). thinking on either a coral beauty angel, or a six line for my next fish....any suggestions ??
