I’m fairly newÂ to theÂ saltwater scene but do have quite a bit of experience with freshwater. I have a Fluval evo 13.5,Â 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 themÂ 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 wrongÂ and maybe theyÂ’re not???? Â Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.Â Â 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 Â Â
