Clownfish rejecting female plumbing?


Recommended Posts

OK, I've got 2 clowns....one is about a 1/3 larger than the other.

The larger one keeps doing that 'submissive' jerking towards the smaller fish.


Are they confused as to their roles?


Seriously, the above is true, but my question is.....when do they start changing sexes? How mature do they need to be?

I think Wilkenson's "Clownfishes" says around the 9-12 month mark, longer for some species/situations. Dont quote me though. Its just what I remember reading. By my best guess, I figure my Ocells are a bit past a year old and their "dancing" has calmed down a bit.


Your guys look good. Bigger size difference than mine. Should do just fine.
