    Afropenguin's Clown Tank

    Hi! This is my tank. I like it very much. I hope you like it too. This is my second saltwater tank. All pictures are taken with a pixel 2 with no gel filter and no editing (I'm too lazy to do any of that). Parameters: Salinity - 1.025 Calcium - 420 Alk - 7.9 Mag - 1320 Temperature - 77°F Nitrates - 10 Phosphates - 1 Equipment list: Tank: 40g Mode Aquarium 15g Sump (about 10g of water in there) Some heater Hydro Smart ATO Filtration: Reef Octopus Classic 110 Space Saver Skimmer 40Lbs Base rock ~20lbs live sand Bag of activated carbon BRS 6 STAGE DELUXE PLUS RO/DI SYSTEM Lighting: 2x AI Prime Circulation: Hydor Koralia 425 Jebao Return Pump Husbandry Schedule: 5 gallon water change once per week Fill ATO container once per 2-3 weeks (5g container) Clean glass / empty skimmer cup as needed Stocking List: Fish 10 Clown Fish Inverts 4 Trochus snails 1 Cerith Snail 1 Nassarius Snail 1 Blue Tuxedo Urchin 1 Fighting Conch Anemone 1 Green Haddoni Carpet Anemone 7 Bubble tip anemone 4 Rock flower anemone 1 Maxi-mini carpet anemone Coral 1 Orange plate coral - RIP Elegance coral 2 torch corals Some GSP Sun coral Red gorgonian Some acans Green Candy Cane Green Monti Cap - RIP Feeding: I usually just feed a blend of whatever I have to the clown fish and the leftovers get picked up by the NPS corals. I spot feed the anemones silverside once a week but will probably start feeding them squid since the clowns won't eat it. Lighting Schedule: Plan to add: Algae reactor Auto roller mat Replace lid with something else
  2. Hello refers. So I recently had picked up a maroon clown fish very impulsively. Not actually knowing that they are a much more aggressive clown than ocellaris and percale which are usually not even a safe match to put in a nano or even a larger tank. The maroon ended up finding a low flow spot under a rock and camped out there till my light went out. Before I went to bed a hour or so after lights out I went to see how these fishies wanted to set up sleeping for the night. With my phone light dimmed I tried to shed a little light in to find them. I found my maroon had taken over original clown "coco" (lsf said its a black ocellaris but I personally think that it is a photon and feel feel to let me know what you guys think from the pictures) typical sleeping spot. When I saw this I was a little concerned so I did a little research and felt that I had just put a assassin in my tank, and was actually planning to bring back my new pick up the next day. I ended up leaving the fish together in my 60 liter reef since from the 5 hours together they to my knowledge had not cared to interact. The next morning 'coco' was up to the same routine it always is (btw the clown is a year old and I've have had it for 6 months so assuming coco is a female) and the maroon was back hiding in the same low flow spot and seemed territorial, but not aggressive as coco seemed to check in consistently and annoying it. Feed went better than expected, with coco going crazy and the maroon coming out a little to grab a couple pellets. I was now relaxed a little and decided with my busy day I'd return the fish the following day. I spent the next 5 or 6 hour doing homework and keeping a close eye on them. all of a sudden when I took a peek the maroon had joined coco daily fun in some playful swimming against the flow. This is when I started to see the personality of the two fish. Coco would chase the maroon around and I was thinking the she was trying to show that she was the queen of the reef but it seem more that she was just happy for a friend and they acted like 2 dogs playing with each other. Later after getting home the maroon had returned to her rock and coco was acting normal. Now its about 2 hours after the lights had went out and wanted to see what the 2 had chosen for sleeping. Coco is kinda in her usual spot and the maroon had picked to sleep roughly four or five inches away right threw a little cave in the back and seem like they were starting to 'pair' in a sort of way similar to my experience with clowns of the same species. Please let me know any feed back of experience, thoughts, precautions, or whatever you'd like :) https://youtu.be/uUAx4bSg-S0

    QT tank set up

    I have a question.. im going to set up a QT tank to treat one of my clown fish. Ive heard some say i can use a live rock to have some beneficial bacteria so the ammonia wont spike. Just as long as i don't take it out and use it on my main display tank. Some say not to because the parasite an latch on to the rock.. I heard about the filtration sponges but i don't have time to let is sit in my tank to get populated bacteria. Any suggestions??
  4. Question, can I add a baby clownfish to my tank that has a medium size Wyoming white? Saw a few awesome baby ones today and it was so tempting but I don’t want to get one and put it in a bad situation. ItÂ’s neat seeing so many and they all swam to me when I pointed at them hahaha.

  6. What's the recommended size tank required to house a couple of ocellaris clown fish and what anemone should I get for it, it's for my sons room. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated as I'm a first timer Sorry if this has been posted before.
