I have a pair of percula clowns that are very personable. One is big, one is little, and they are always together - usually begging for food.

I would recommend a bicolor blenny -

Mine is very personable. He hops from rock to rock, then ducks into one for awhile. Not to mention he eats hair algae.

Very cool fish...

And the winners are...

Royal Gramma


Yellowhead Jawfish


During this process, my wife convinced herself that we should upgrade to a much larger tank in about a year so she can get a Flame Angel. The tank is currently in a baby room we are building, once the baby gets moving around a lot, the tank has to be moved, then it is upgrade time

Ok, I have fish now! I passed on the Jawfish because I could not find any more locally, and I needed a swimmer. So, I got a Clownfish, and a Royal Gramma. Not sure if the Clownfish is a True Percular or an Ocellaris, but it love swimming around the tank :P

I really like my strawberry pseudo. He has a lot of personality and when I am sitting in front of my tank watching everything, he follows me when I move around to the sides which I think is pretty cool. Awesome awesome fish in my book.

Most likely your clown is a Ocellaris. You can ask the pet store. they usually only carry Ocellaris and will get a few wild caught Percs in from time to time. Or, post a pic! we will tell you!

I got the Clownfish at Petco, they had no clue if it was a False or a True Percula when I asked. The tank was labelled "Tank Raised Percula $14.99". Then I figured since it was tank raise, it must be an Ocellaris, only to find that some True Percs are tank raised too? I got the Clownfish at Petco because they have a long warranty on their livestock and in the unlikely event my tank was "bad", I could get another fish.

I picked up the Royal Gramma at a LFS that had the RG for a while.

The clown is most likely an Ocellaris. I have two of those myself. they are so beautiful and they have wonderful personalities.

and shame on you for encouraging Petco to carry Saltwater fish by purchasing one there!

how is the royal gramma doing? I am considereing one for myself.

Don't trust the Petco warranty, it is for freshwater and not saltwater fish. If the cashier gave you the purchase ticket that the salesperson gave you, read it. They claim no warranty on saltwater or brackish fish. I hope you qt this fish. Petco is notorious for having diseases in their tanks.

I'm not against Petco - just would like to see them universally take better care of their tanks. Saw too many sick fish and inverts at two local Petco's. Nobody in the stores had any idea how to take care of saltwater tanks.
