. I started off with just two clownfish and a snail back in January. Everything was going good for the first 3 months so I added a pipefish (pipefish and clownies r kept in the same tank at the store so I knew it was ok to put them together). It was a small pipefish, I believe it was a blue striped? I donít really remember. The slightly bigger clownie of the pair always picked on the other fish and it got to the point where I woke up and the pipefish was half eaten...3 months later I came home from school and the other clownfish was half eaten. I feed the fish 2-3 times a day so itís not like theyíre not fed lol. I shouldíve just returned the aggressive clownie but she seems to be doing ok by herself. Itís been a month and a half by herself and I started to see some algae bloom so I bought a snail and Iíve been looking into getting some coral (which I believe u have seen) so I added a snail and a small Xenia yesterday afternoon. I acclimated everything and as soon as I stuck my hand in the water,holding the snail, to put it on a rock the freaking clownfish bit Onto the foot of the snail and started pulling!!! Iíve tried pretty much everything to stop this clownfish itís even immune to me literally slapping the tank to get it to stop attacking fish
it hasnít bothered the coral at all and as of this morning itís stayed away from the snail so hopefully everything will be ok lol
