  2. Hi, Around a week ago I got a Tribal blenny from my LFS for my 34-gallon mixed reef tank. My current stock was a six-line wrasse, 3 clownfish (yes, I know, not normal, but the guy I bought it from had all 3 for two years, and now I have had them for a year so they are all cool), pistol shrimp, and a cleaner shrimp. I never had problems introducing fish to the tank ever before (the clowns were the only original stock), and so I thought all would be good. Boy, was I wrong, the big female was immediately aggressive, and not even just nips, once when into the rockwork and came out with him in his mouth; on top of that, she has become increasingly aggressive towards one of her clown mates. The Blenny now takes shelter in the very back on the tank were the clowns can't go. I and probably going to return him tomorrow as they have yet to stop fighting, the big female is still searching for him as she knows he is in the back. I have several questions. 1) Why would the clown be aggressive all of a sudden? 2) Is there a way to stop this? 3) Can I get new fish or will she always act like this now? Update: Now even the medium clown is going after the blenny

  4. Current FTS - 20.11.2017 Background : I’ve been a fan of Reef tanks for ages but always was afraid to start one myself so I kept myself busy with freshwater tanks. After reading a lot about them, especially this forum, I decided to start my first Nano Reef. My initial plan was to start something small, around 6 Gallons. But after going through this forum, I saw how hard it is to keep small aquariums stable. So I decided to start with a 26 Gallon. Tank : ● 26 Gallon Custom Tank with a filter compartment in the back. Altogether around 30 Gallons. Equipment : ● Resun 1000L/h Submersible Pump ● Jebao RW-4 Wavemaker ● Resun SK-300 Nano Protein Skimmer ● Zetlight ZA1201 Marine LED Light Filteration : ● 30 Pounds of Live Rock ● 15 Pounds of Live Sand ● Filter Sponge ● GAC ● Purigen Livestock: Fish: ● Firefish (Nemateleotris magnifica) x 1 ● Black Photon Clownfish (Amphiprion percula) x 2 ● Purple Firefish (Nemateleotris decora) x 1 ● Segmented Blenny (Salarias segmentatus) x 1 ● Banggai cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni) x 1 ● Pinkbar goby (Pinkbar goby) x 1 Inverts: ● Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis) x 2 ● Trochus Snails (Trochus radiatus) x 5 ● Porcelain Anemone Crab (Neopetrolisthes oshimai) x 1 ● Indian Sea Star (Fromia indica) x 1 ● Maxi-Mini Carpet Anemone (Stichodactyla tapetum) x 2 Corals: ● Zoanthids (Zoanthus sp.) x 5 ● Mushroom Coral (Actinodiscus sp.) x 1 ● Superman Mushroom (Discosoma sp.) x 2 ● Hammer Coral (Euphyllia ancora) x 1 ● Open Brain Coral ( ? ) X 1 FTS - 11.07.2016 - First Livestock Added FTS - 11.06.2016 - Tank Established Comments are appreciated.
  5. So as you can see in the title I have finally broke down and bought a Red Sea max 170 with the sump upgrade after I saw that my LFS was doing a 15% discount on them. But I haven't filled this tank yet but I will probably buy some water to fill later today, this is MY first tank, but I helped take care of one at the LFS I help out at. But basically I know I want corals, there my favorite thing in the reefing hobby. I will probably keep the Red Sea skimmer in the back chamber along with the media basket then in the sump upgrade I will most likely do a refugium. The light is a AI hydra 26, and I might get a MP-10, if not I might just get 2 korelias to tide me over till I get the MP-10. So now that you all know the equipment im running im wondering what livestock I can keep. Coral -GSP (separate rock) -Finger Leather -Toadstool -Zoas -Hammer -Frogspawn -Candycane -Elegence -Possibly acans -Later down the line a Monti cap or two. -And then any other corals that I might find interesting later down the line. Fish (I order from what will be added last to what will be added first) -Pair of Occ. Clowns -Yellow corris wrasse (favorite fish) -Yellow clown goby -Pearly jawfish Inverts - 3-4 Narrsarius snails - 3-4 Trochus snails - Cleaner shrimp Clams (later after tank has matured) -1 Maxima -1 Deresa The tank is about 24x24x24 Any thoughts much appreciated

  7. My friend has one Black and White Ocellaris Clownfish for around 4 to 5 years now (caught in the wild as one), just moved it to a 40-gallon tank. I am thinking to get her another clownfish, but not the same one. Maybe a Black Snowflake or a Black Ice Snowflake, will they be able to get along together? I like the gold nugget maroon clownfish but its different species and maroons are pretty aggressive. Any other good clownfish recommendations? Thank youuuu ! P.S. I do not know much about clownfish.
  8. I have an established 35L nano with a occy Clownfish and a Fire Shrimp. I am thinking of adding a Goby to help keep the sand clean. Which would be the best Goby to add or would this be overcrowding the tank. I don’t want the clown to become hostile to a small Goby. Thanks in advance
  9. Hello all, For the past month, I’ve kept 2 ocellaris clownfish, one caramel and one snowflake clown. Now, besides the aggressive behavior I’ve observed, Nemo and Marlin (yes, that’s their names) made wonderful pets, but I was forced to give them away. Against the advice of online forums, I attempted to add a third and final maroon clownfish (I understand this was ill-advised, and completely accept all the hate I receive in advance). You would think that a maroon clown would’ve killed the pair, however, as soon as I added a sizeable maroon clown (as big as the pair) and immediately the pair mauled it to death overnight.This left me in awe, as I was under the impression that maroons are the most aggressive clownfish. Believe me, I have completely learnt my lesson regarding more than 2 clownfish per tank, and will not attempt it again unless I manage to turn my 180 gallon planted into a FOWLR (good luck with that, says mom and dad). I have since then given them away to my trusted LFS and have adopted a nice pair of maroon clowns, which as abnormal as it seems, are much more placid than my former ocellaris pair. Anyways, my conclusion is that, as common and cute as the percula/ocellaris clowns may be, do not take them as peaceful. I understand I may have gotten an exception to the rule, however, never underestimate the feats of Mother Nature. ~Your Average 13 Year Old Reefer

  11. I got my clownfish about five days ago i just noticed that he/she has this small bump on its body, it usually stays on the left side of the tank and just swims up and down. Is this normal?
  12. hi guys about 10 years ago i had a 65 gallon reef that i loved! since moving to nyc i haven't set one up until now. which began as a very basic 10 gallon tank. a month in she started leaking which forced me to upgrade to something a little bigger but much nicer. so heres what i have. tank -IM nuvo 14 gallon heater-cobalt 100w lighting -current orbit marine led (light works great for the price and what i have for now) -finnex light (for refugium) filtration -purigen -chemipure -phosnet i also have the algae barn nano refugium kit. -finnex hob refugium i have about 17lbs of live rock i got from my LFS (pacific aquarium) 5lbs of live sand flow -sicce .5 silent pump (stock pump was too loud) nano koralia weekly water changes (about 2 gallons) the old tank is pictured first. i liked the rock work much more in the first tank. all together the tank is about 3 months old.
  13. Hey everyone, for starters I have a 20 gallon high with only 1 fish (Firefish goby). After some time (month and a half) had passed after setting up the tank, me and my girlfriend decided to add an ocellaris clown from the local petco. Yay! All seemed well after acclimation, and introduction. It's worth mentioning I did not quarantine this fish, dip it, or anything besides acclimation. I know what you're going to say, and I now have a 10 gallon quarantine tank setup lol. I had the fish for roughly 4 or 5 days when I noticed a white/faded spot near the tail, it got progressively worse and spread slightly on the other side of the fish. After quarantining and dipping the fish and medications, I lost the clownfish about 3 days later. I know brook and oodinium are relatively quick killers, and it definitely didn't look like ich, and it didn't really resemble velvet. As a matter of fact, it MOST resembled oodinium, but the fish lasted too long I feel like.. Any thoughts?? Water parameters stayed in check the entire time with ammonia staying below 0.5ppm. Thanks in advance! -Connor
  14. Hello Everyone, just showing you guys my clownfish red carpet condo ?. Nuvo cylinder acrylic aquarium, A160WE Kessil lighting. Carpet is red and about 16-17inches across. I have had the clowns since babies and have raised a few batches of their fry. Carpet also has a little what I call baby on the side but some people say it might not be lol Either way its still cool to me. Thanks for checking it out any questions just ask. Thanks.
  15. Hi everybody, just bought this used 46l Fluval Edge on gumtree and this is what I’ve started with, hoping to get the marine pac 3 to begin my reef tank!!!!
  16. https://youtu.be/qftLal1onUg Saw the clownfish doing this all day yesterday. Who knows what they are doing? Thanks!
  17. So we have this small clown fish for just over a month now and decided to add a antenna goby to the tank. (Evo 13.5) stock everything. After a week.we notice the clown is really giving the goby a hard time. At this point the goby is stressed out he hangs at the top of the tank sucking air and his tail is bit up a lot. So the guy from the LFS suggests I give the clown a time out for 2 to 3 days to give the goby some time to make himself at home. What do you think?
  18. So I just put together my first reef, and I bought some live rock from my local pet store, not really looking closely at the rock. When I got home I found a snail on it, and later noticed a teeny crab. The crab is very small. It's a white/gray color with orangeish spots. It's mostly hiding in holes in the rock and I haven't seen it again for a couple days. Anyone have any idea what it is? I didn't get a picture of it. I also found this snail. He stays on the rock. He isn't able to right himself when he falls onto the sand. I've had to pick him up and put him back a couple times. I also got this clownfish. One of his sides is completely normal but on his other side his stripe is broken. Any ideas what morph he is? He was labeled just a normal oscellaris and I even got him on sale. I'd say he was a steal
  19. Hi guys. So I have two clowns in my tank. A black ice and a da Vinci. Recently I noticed the da vinci (which is the smaller of the two) kind of digging and nipping at corals in my tank. I have acans,candys, and a scoly. He hits all three up. Anybody have this problem? He also nips at the rocks too. He’s starting to piss me off! What should I do?
  20. I am re-setting up a Fusion 10g and I want to house mainly an anemone some chalices maybe a stick if i am lucky ...oh and my clownfish. So wanted to get a conversation started regarding the filtration I currently have in mind: Was thinking of going with: Reef Glass Protein Skimmer MarinePure Ceramic Spheres Chaeto Algae Reactor Do you guys think this is overkill? What you think? Thanks for your time.
  21. So I know this has come up countless times in the past, but I'm trying to get a little more of a gameplan... The She (about 1.5-1.75" Phantom ocellaris currently in breeder box jail): The He (about 1"-1.125" Snowflake ocellaris currently free in tank): So I am trying to get an idea of the following: Does the Phantom (bigger and apparently more aggressive) belong in jail? Or should I put the smaller injured Snowflake into isolation? How long do people recommend to keep them separated? So far it's the second day of separation. Is it better to separate for a long period and reintroduce, or do it multiple times for shorter jail time? How long do tail fins take to heal up? I imagine it would not be worth waiting that long to reintroduce the Phantom.
  22. Hey everyone, so i’m currently rocking a 10 gallon nuvo which has been great so far.. but i’ve really wanted to make my dream come true and get a smaller 5 or 7 gallon tank which would only have anemones and one or two clown fish.. maybe i’ll do one clown and one yellow goby. Anyways, i wanted to know whats the better size tank to go with? 5 gallon or 7 gallon. I absolutely want it to be one of these sizes because it fits my night stand perfectly. Thanks again for your inputs
  23. Howdy, I adopted a 14 gallon BioCube. I placed the other livestock in a bigger setup. Remaining is a clownfish (see pic below). Knowing that these fish are social, I wanted to add a second clownfish to the aquarium. I did seek advice from a trusted source whom stated that I should proceed with caution. I was wondering y'alls thoughts and recommendations on adding an additional clownfish. I know that I cannot place too many fish in the setup, considering its size. Keeping that in mind, are there any other species of fish that are recommended for the aquarium if I cannot safely introduce another clownfish? Thank you, in advance, for your input!
