Silly Clownfish..

I'm just wondering if anyone else's clowns go through "moods" like mine do.

I have a stubby clown, and a bigger normal occ. clown. The bigger clown is more outgoing, but the stubby clown almost always stays in the left rear corner of the tank. The bigger clown will usually stay somewhere near him, but they almost never venture to the other side.

But there are some days where they won't stop swimming, and they go crazy together.

Most of the time they're pretty boring though and stay near the left side.

Anyone else experience the same?

I've never kept clownfish but I can imagine that they would display interesting behavior. After all, clownfish and damsels are related to cichlids.

I've been doing some research and I think mine might be officially paired, which is why they've always stayed in the back together all day. I'll watch them some more, the female has been a little bit more aggressive towards the male, and I haven't seen them do their twitching thing lately, so maybe they've figured it out.

Only time will tell I guess!

I wonder what their babies would look like since one is a stubby and the other is a normal size... Lol

My paired clowns usually stayed on right of my tank. The only time I really saw them out and about is when they were performing a gang beating on the yellow tail damsels. Even when they were just staying on the right side of the tank they were always entertaining to watch
