  1. Clownfish fighting, normal or too much?

    I have a Fluval evo 13 and my female clown turned on my male and killed him when she hit about 2.5 inches. It happened insanely quickly as well. I was out of town for one week, and She started to relentlessly chase/attack him to the point where he was jumping out of the water smacking against my lid to escape. My girlfriend tried to save him by putting in a small make shift tank but it was to late, he was pretty screwed up, torn fins and bruised body, and despite being isolated he died a week later. While i think this is normal behavior for clowns dominance, i think the small tank size amplifies the agrression.
  2. what do you do when your anemone gets too big?

    Depends on the tank. don't spot feed them to keep them smaller, longer, but in a healthy system, they can grow fast. mine hasn't split in the year but it went from like 3-4 inches diameter to over 10-11 inches now when fully out.
  3. CaribSea Rubble Zone question

    I have used these for frags. I believe it has been cleaned of all organic material so if you have adequate bio filtration it shouldn't be a problem.
  4. Help stocking Fluval Evo 13.5

    two clowns will eventually be pushing the nutrient levels in that tank. I have two clowns in mine who are about a year old and they are mean and dirty. they would kill another fish in the tank not enough room. Option 1 may work out better... but for three fish I would think they would need to be smaller type gobies and maybe one of the above.
  5. hello I am selling my black on black mini tide For $175.00. Bought at the beginning of this year it has 3.1 arrays 4 channel with moonlight bluefish and gooseneck mounting.

  6. Tank restart! dandelion's Fluval 13.5

    In the second picture, it looks like you have tissue loss on your monti setosa frag. that frag appears to have some stn or rtn. I would check all your params and make sure it isn't something else. i have sps in the same tank and very small shifts in params in this tank seem to do damage quick.
  7. my duo fell into my tank Help!

    update! Lucky for me I live in Los Angeles! A friend of mine who I surf with almost every morning is a camera tech at a major movie camera house. His job is to fix high tech movie cameras all day. This am, I told him what happened and he said he could dry it out for me, As he regularly fixes cameras that get water damage. I gave him my light in the bag of rice this am and have just received a text that it works like a champ and I can pick it up whenever. Thanks every one who helped. And these lights are incredible and now proven durable, but don't drop them in your tank.
  8. Tips an advice for anemones.

    I think a BTA would be your best bet for a clown to host. There is a clown at a lfs that hosts a condy anemone, which seems smaller than bta, but not sure if that is a common occurrence. Not sure about your lights and if anemone could thrive under them. All anemones will wander, which is something to consider, however my bta once it found a suitable spot has not moved in about a year, even through a tank transfer.

  13. Hi i have a tide mini on bluefish and run an evening light schedule. I figured blue fish would change times for the time change but mine did not and I have angry inlaws who said my light didn't go out until 1am instead of 12 as I assured them. How do I manually fix time.
