well, i don't have another tank, so i put her in one of those hang-on net boxes. now the male is swimming around the whole tank and enjoying himself. but i do feel sorry for the female, so i am planning to release her tomorrow morning. hopefully she calms down a bit.

i'll probably decide next week if i want to split up the pair (trade in the female for another fish). do you guys think if i get a third fish it might help?

well..i let the female go and she gave the guy another beating. now the fin on the bottom and his right have big nips on them. i had to stop it so i put her in the net box again.

so i have decided to trade the female for another fish. is there a cool small fish that won't have too much trouble with the male YSM clownfish? the male seems to be pretty friendly. i was thinking of a blue tang, or maybe something that doesn't grow too big (i only havea 38 gallon).

i'm also gonna pick up a dragon goby to clean my sand. i had a seperate thread on the goby and a few people recommended the dragon.
