Upload pics to your profile and then post links to the pics. Or use photobucket and post links. Or become an AA member and you can post more pics.

How do your nitrates do having a clown fish? I want one but am hesitant to get one for my 10 gal because I don't want to get algae and stuff from the nitrates.

Honestly, I don't have the full test kit, so I don't quite know about nitrates. I haven't had any fish casualties or anything so I think I'm okay! I get algae on the glass but clean it off with the magnet cleaners. I do weekly water changes and my ammonia levels stay at zero... I honestly think you would be fine getting one. Mine seems happy and eats like a champ.. My tank seems to be doing very well right now ... Knock on wood!

Thanks! Your tank looks amazing so a clown must not be too bad... I can't decide on a clown or a yellow tail damsel. I think both would be too much. My tank will probably stay empty of fish cause I will never be able to decide. LOL!

Haha thanks! your tank is looking great as well!

I like my clown! I hope it's not to much for this tank! It is a 12 gallon so it's a little bit bigger! I want to upgrade to a 28 jbj cube so bad, but definitely can't afford it haba
