    here is a picture of my 14 year old clown, aka big mamma. she is around 5" long. i have never posted a pic of her and thought she deserves some respect. she is in a 55 gallon until i get my new 'fish cave' done. will be putting her in a 6' 125 gallon tank.

    That's a beautiful maroon clown chum. I had one for 4 years but it started beating up my emporer angel and every other fish that got within a foot or so. Only my sohal didn't feel the wrath of my maroon clown named demon. Lol
