When my clowns try to host the fs, I point at them, maintain eye contact and repeat "No! Nooo, bad clowns, this is my frogspawn, your cave is over there, nooooooo!!" Works every time!

They look at you funny for a second but always realize who's boss and respect your authority. Like a teenager!

Looks like I might loose my green chromis as well.

Had a bit of a family emergency the other night and never managed to do a water change in the HT (although that's only the second time there hasn't been a daily water change) I did a water change yesterday but didn't have time to test the water and when I got up this morning my chromis was at the bottom of the tank. He wasn't on his side but that's not where he usually sleeps. I txt my girlfriend a couple of hours later and she said he was still there. It must have been because I never managed to do a water change because he has been fine up until now.

I have enough water to do another 20% water change when I go home. If he is still alive and I do this water change do u guys think if I start mixing water when I get home I could do a second water change later tonight. The water would be mixing for roughly 5hrs. I can only assume there must be ammonia in the water but even with that said my clown seemed to be fine this morning

Ok so I got a closer look at the chromis today. I think that maybe him and my clown have a worm parasite. I seen a really thin stingy worm looking thing coming out the back end of both of them.

Is this unusual? I'm in bed now but will try and get a pic tomorrow.

Does anyone know what these are? I know it's hard to see but they are tiny. It's the cluster of dots on the glass just under the waterline. The glass on my tank is covered in them

I have a better pic now but it won't let me upload it. I found what I think is snails eggs (white stringy things on my LR) not sure if it might just be baby snails?
