yes they are expensive.. My LFS sells them for 125 a piece or maybe even a little higher..

Damm, they do sell them on Live aquarium, i just found them .. They are in the divers den section..

I cant believe how much.. $449 For a pair of them.. Thats ridiculous...

Maybe i should pick up these 2 on CL for $60 lol

Drs. Foster and Smith Diver's Denģ - Amphiprion ocellaris
those are "premium" or show quality, hence the price. but yeah they're at least worth checking out on CL. check for signs of good health, swimming normally, clear eyes, etc.

That's cool gboy. How's the fox face doing in the tank? How long have you had him. I know are tanks are on the edge of being large enough for him

Exactly, the size was the conflict. However, i have found him to not be a huge swimmer sideways, but all around the tank in general! Added him 3+ months ago about. He's a great addition for sure.

well i didn't end up getting the clown fish and i glad i didn't.. My purple firefish died over the Christmas holiday.. I saw he looked a little stressed and was going to transfer him to QT when i got back but it was too late..

My coral beauty was curios at first when i put in the firefish a few weeks ago but i though they were getting along.. Then i started to watch them when the lights went out and the coral beauty wouldn't let the firefish into some of the areas in the live rock and must have stressed him out to much.. It seemed like it got worse as time passed rather than better..The weird thing though was the firefish would eat everday and looked really good until the last day he was alive..

Anyway..what should i do about the coral beauty.. i know i shouldn't have added it this soon if i wanted peaceful fish in the tank also...Could i take him out for awhile?
Maybe just put all semi aggressive fish in there? Problem is, i wanted a larger variety of fish to choose from and being a 65 gallon really narrows down my choices unless maybe i put the peaceful ones in first or move live rock around?

The coral beauty is doing great in the tank but just hope he not gonna be a nuisance to the other fish.. let me know what you think

firefish are very very passive. I would give the clowns a try, rearrange some rocks, and if there is aggression after the first day take the coral beauty out.
