Is it normal for my Blue Velvet Damsel to pick on my brain coral (Trachyphyllia)?! Came home from work yesterday and the coral was all shriveled up like it had been disturbed. He normally plumps up to about 4 to 5 inches. I thought it might have been warfare since it was sandwiched between a large scoly and an acan colony. Moved the brain coral away and put my camera on him. He plumped up nicely this morning until the damsel started picking at it! To my knowledge, he has never done this to any other coral in the tank. The damsel has been in the tank since setup 18 months ago, but the brain coral was just added 2 weeks ago. Why is he doing that? What can I do to keep him from picking on the coral?! Butthead Damsel's first attack this morning... Another... And the most recent attack... Where I originally put the brain coral...
So i have had a Clarkii Clown in my BC32 solo for a week, then added a skunk cleaner shrimp a week later, now Clarkii has been in for two weeks, one with shrimp, ordered and received a dispar anthias from LiveAquaria (they were great, fish arrived in perfect condition) acclimated for a few hours then released, clarkii was interested in him with the occasional nip at the bag, nothing much. Clarkii instantly started attacking the anthias upon release and was trying to rip fins off. i turned the lights off for the evening and overnight, to no avail. Still relentlessly attacking, so i put clarkii in "jail"(tupperware with holes attached to surface so no more attacking) i ordered a clear box for this purpose, itll be here the 26. im going to keep him there for a week, then try again. If that doesn't work i'm going to re-do my aquascape to remove Clarkii's territory. Any other Tips for reducing this aggression. (If worst comes to worst then i will remove the clarkii, as much as i love him, i want a full tank of fish) Help plz
