AbnormalReefer posted a topic in Fish ForumHello 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
