I am losing my mind. I've been sitting here trying to enter my aquarium into a software package. This endeavor is requiring me to do some serious identifying of the creatures that I have in my tank. I'm suddenly finding that what the LFS
said was a dominoe is really a three spotted damsel. (Of course, he only has two spots, but who's counting) What i thought was a yellow tailed damsel is really just a blue damsel with a yellow tail, or is it a yellow tailed chromis. Is that really a spot on his gill or on my glasses. HEEEELLLPPPP! 8O
Actually, other than going blind, I'm about there. Believe it or not, it's come down to a pair of cute little clowns. I thought they were "percula clowns". Then I saw the "ocellaris". I have Dr. Burgess's Atlas of Marine Aquarium Fishes, Third Edition. If you happen to have that book, the "percula" is on page 372 nestling under an anemone. The "ocellaris" is on page 377. What's the difference? I have a nice white anemone in my tank which I got for the clowns to play in. I always thought they looked so **** cute doing that. Mine of course, won't go near it. (I thought that might help.) I'll attach a photo of mine and if anyone can tell me which they are and how they know, please tell me.
