I finally got up the nerve to remove the cup that had reached the surface. I was sure I would collapse the reef and crush the cup.


But......

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yay!!!!!! :happydance: IN ONE PIECE!  
 

I used a hammer and a scalpel in the tank and chopped it loose. Now it will live on in the 75 gallon. It’s about 4” x 4” which is huge for a tank that is only 8” deep!

I’ve always loved that piece in your tank!  It will look fantastic in the bigger tank.  Can’t wait to see how big the thing ends up being!  I may need to add that to my list of corals I want to try.

Yeah seriously- that big snowflake clown in the big tank drives me nuts whenever I’m messing with frags near her corner. She hasn’t bit me since that Sebae was in the tank but I don’t trust her at all.

I think about getting him a girlfriend from time to time but there’s no way I’m dealing with two of them attacking me....... punks.

Clowns are great fish in a tank/biotope set up specifically for them. My ritteri system was a coral run, but they took it over with 20 Blackfoot clowns. It's an old run that I decided was too small and tall, 6 ritteri anemones and the Blackfoot clowns took over. There's now 9 ritteris in there with the clowns, they split a few times. Still trying to figure out what triggered them to split. I wouldn't reach into that tank if I dropped a $100 bill in there, those bastards are ferocious, especially when they have eggs, they will bark at you too.

Both of my clown pairs have males. The males are lazy and never do anything to me (how TYPICAL). It's the female that protects her zone.

Yep, when I had the omanensis pairs they were loud AF, these guys are audible. Even perculas/occys will bark. The loudest are Sebaes and clarkis.

Smaller damsels can click, croak, and purr a bit too - mostly they keep it quiet and bicker with each other in indoor voices thankfully XD

I had no idea. Can you please record this barking so I can see it?!
