Thanks For The Help
You could definitely try a smaller clown in addition to changing up rock and such that may disrupt the territory. If your tank can accommodate an anemone, I'd suggest getting a BTA. The clowns may or may not be hosted by the nem - sometimes they go right in and others they take time. I'm not familiar with other fish that you have, is it aggressive?
Its Semi Agressive, But Ive Never Seen Him Pick On Any Fish Unless It Was In His Territory. There Were Big Bite Marks On My Yellow Wrasse Leading Me To Think It Was The Clown. I Might Try A BTA But Will They Eat My Fish?
If you are leaning on getting a BTA, I just ordered one from Coral Collections out of CA. It arrives tomorrow. Fascinating colors.
are your parameters stable? you said you've had the tank for 2 years? do you have good lighting?
A BTA will not eat a clown, as a matter of fact they prefer smaller pices of food. In the wild the clown fish will feed them when being hosted. Now some things to watch, im trying to insult your knowledge, for when getting nems..... Make sure they have good color, there are no pure white nems.... I have learned this the hard way. Make sure the foot is not torn and the mouth is tight. I would drip acclimate it for at least an hour, but that is just me. Stability is key with these guys.... I believe if you go the nem route you will be fine.
+1 on the lighting, good lighting is a must with nems.... Sorry forgot to mention this.
Use Flouresent Lighting In The Cube. Just Bought New Lights, Still Flouresent To Replace The Old Ones. Also Dont Test Peramiters, But Everything Seem To Like My Tank
Fluorescent as in t-5? Not to sure what that means buddy, I'm slow in the pick up at times.... Lol.
Yes They Are t-5 s
