  1. I got these guys from a buddy to quarantine and treat MV symptoms and he had no clue. I've never been any good at telling the difference in Perculas and Ocellaris.
  2. 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
  3. Will a "designer" and a "standard" clownfish form a bonded pair, provided they are both Ocellaris? Is a bonded pair more likely to host in a coral/anemone/etc. than a singleton, since the pair would have to find somewhere to spawn? What are the ideal "surrogate anemone" corals for a pair of clownfish? I'd like my clownfish to host in a beautiful, easy-to-keep beginner coral that they're not gonna bother in anyway. With so many people keeping clownfish pairs in nano reefs, where anemones are big no-no, I don't understand why there isn't a list of good "surrogate anemone" corals for clownfish pairs. Is the hosting behaviour so unpredictable? Many suggest toadstool, frogspawn, duncan. But in some cases the clownfish pair had a negative effect on the coral.
  4. I’m fairly new to the saltwater scene but do have quite a bit of experience with freshwater. I have a Fluval evo 13.5, I did fully cycle my tank and test frequently I even added a clean up crew before adding fish to make sure my tank is ready for fish. My local LFS had a Wyoming White clownfish and a couple of regular ocellaris fish separately. I loved the Wyoming Clown but wanted a pair and through my research I learned itÂ’s better to add the clowns in the tank together at the same time if i want better chances of them pairing so I got an ocellaris that was significantly smaller than the Wyoming. TheyÂ’ve been in my tank now for about 2 weeks. It took a couple of days for them to eat but after that theyÂ’ve been eating just fine. I alternate between feeding them palettes and mysis shrimp, sometime they even get a few bites of seaweed that I feed clean up crew. So my concern is IÂ’ve been noticing the Wyoming white striking the smaller clown which is typical pairing behavior BUT the small one doesnÂ’t do that ticking/twitching that I read theyÂ’re supposed to do. He just swims away and goes about his business. He doesnÂ’t show any signs of stress and he eats just fine. I do see them together at night most of the time by the power heads. (Not sure if they hosted on them). My question is does the male clown ALWAYS do the ticking when pairing? Are mine paired already but just not doing the ticking thing?? Should I be concerned? Maybe the small one or even both are still too young to pair? The LFS employee assured me that they are compatible because theyÂ’re both ocellaris, was he wrong and maybe theyÂ’re not????  Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.  Sorry for the shitty pictures. I took screenshots from a video so yÂ’all can see the size difference. Once again the small fish was not in a tank on his own. He was in a group of about 10+.  Â
  5. Hi all. I am new to the saltwater hobby. Picked up a cycled 13.5 gallon (FLUVAL Sea Evo XII) a week ago from a friend. The tank has already been running for a series of months but they decided it was too small for what they had planned. I purchased two juvenile clowns: ocellaris and frostbite ocellaris. They were both between an inch and about an inch and a half. They were purchased from the same store but were in different tanks. They were temperature acclimated for about 30 minutes and then drip acclimated for about an hour. Had to acclimate the ocellaris a bit more because it was coming from a lower salinity tank. The two clowns liked each other. The frostbite was significantly smaller than the ocellaris and did his submissive dance almost immediately upon meeting the other clown. In the tank there’s also a blue leg hermit, and a few narassius and trochus snails. Clowns got along fine, swam energetically and ate like pigs. The ocellaris would slightly pick on the frostbite when the lights turned blue during the evening. Seems as though the ocellaris didn’t like the frostbite from swimming too far away from the nozzle (return pump nozzles) during the evening. This morning, on Christmas morning may I add, I came to turn on the blue lights and noticed my frostbite dead on the sand bed. Mind you, I only had them for about 5 days but this was unexpected. Salinity: 1.024 Temp: 78 Ammonia: 0ppm NitRITE: 0ppm NitRATE: 0ppm The ocellaris seems to be okay, though his tail is ever so slightly pale(r) in comparison to what it normally is. The frostbite doesn’t have any physical damages to his body. Any ideas on what may have happened?
  6. Alright so here goes the ultimate adventure! Transfering my 15g tall to the new 20g Long I put together. Shout out to Cromag who cut the acrylic I needed for this project.
  7. Hello everyone, attached is my brand new clownfish i picked up today at my LFS. My LFS doesnt have names for the clownfish they sell, they have several types, but they dont name them.. i picked him up for 65$ (Canadian dollars) if you take a look, he doesnt have that "true" orange that all regular ocellaris clowns have. This one has a very deep black colour on top and towards the tail, vibrant orange, and clear white! i'd like to say its a regular ocellaris but its not, anyone know what this type is called? At my lfs they had these one in a different tank than the regular ocellaris! Thanks
  8. Hello Everyone, I've got a 19 gallon (24''L 16''H 12''W) and I'd like to stock it with captive bred fish and cultured corals only. It has been running for almost 3 months and I've got an Ocellaris pair at the moment. I'm thinking of adding a Neon Goby. Not many cb fish are available in my area but I could get my hands on a couple other goby species (elecatinus puncticulatus) and many Pseudochromis. Could I add an Orchid Dottyback in this tank? From what I read I understand its the most peaceful among Pseudochromis. Here's an FTS Thanks
  9. Hello everyone! I’ve been in the FW hobby for more than a decade and these are my first steps to SW tanks. My 20G has been cycling for two weeks now. I started out with 2.5kg (5.5 pounds) dead rock and added about 0.5 kg (1.1 pounds) of LR the second week. Equipment includes a 2000l/h wavemaker, a 500l/h canister filter filled with carbon and phosphate absorbent , and a 75w heater - no skimmer yet. I’ve been using live bacteria from Aquaforest and I’ve been adding 1-2 pellets every 3-4 days to help with the cycle. I’ve got 0 Ammonia and Nitrites, around 5-10 ppm Nitrates. There’s a thing that looks like a small feather duster on the LR along with something like a spaghetti worm, and they both seem to be fine. Do you think the tank’s ready for the first fish (2 Ocellaris Clownfish)? I’d do a 30% WC before adding anything to the tank. Here’s an FTS before I added the LR. Thanks
