Moving back to FL soon and need to find a good home for these fish. Located in Horseheads, NY and willing to travel within 45 mins to meet up. Female clownfish is a misbar blood orange clownfish Male is a standard ocellaris clownfish Really just want to get them to a good home. Will accept any reasonable offer. Also selling Mr Aqua 12 gallon tank (3 foot long version)
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 it’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. They’ve been in my tank now for about 2 weeks. It took a couple of days for them to eat but after that they’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 I’ve been noticing the Wyoming white striking the smaller clown which is typical pairing behavior BUT the small one doesn’t do that ticking/twitching that I read they’re supposed to do. He just swims away and goes about his business. He doesn’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 they’re both ocellaris, was he wrong and maybe they’re not???? Thanks in advance for any advice you may have. Sorry for the shitty pictures. I took screenshots from a video so y’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+.
Any one have current or pass success with a more exotic goby shrimp pair? Something other then the classic yellow watchman/tiger combo. I'm definitely more of a fan of high fin and dramatically colored gobies but I don't see them paired often. I know that if they are not natural pairing the that makes it unlikely but had anyone have examples of success? Thanks
