Okay so bad news: one died I think he got picked on by others from a bruise he had on his head. Three are still swimming together in a group, one is in hiding, and I can't find the other one 😁

Sounds good, my flame angel almost killed my clowns, even though they were in the tank for 6 months before him. Moved em to the 20 for their own good. It was probably the color though.

No, they do not. Meanwhile, that fish doesn't look like it was attacked.

Honestly, it's hard to tell in the picture, but you can tell in real life. Anyways, there is another one dead with purple marks on it's tail this morning, and my mom said that she had seen one pick on another once So far three are swimming around in their group and one is hiding. I've read stories of chromis being aggressive towards one another.

Sorry about your clownfish! And I ws thinking about getting the flame, but they are kinda expensive and less harder then the rusty and coral beauty I've heard.

I have never seen a clean rusty or coral beauty, they ALWAYs have ich whenever my lfs has them, i have 5 different lfs that gets them in. But they are beautiful fish, i would set up a QT and have copper at the stand by for one of those. My flame showed signs of ich but he was in QT so it was no worrie, make sure you pic the right one!
