    No both are still pretty young. I did perpusely get the perc bigger than the moroon because I didn't want the maroon picking on the perc. One stays on the one side of the tank and the other stays on the other side of the tank. A friend is giving me a anenome hopefully soon and it will be intersting to see what happens. The maroon right now likes to try to host in my blastamosas (sp?)!

    Huge 6 yr old Gold Stripe Maroon Clown.

    6-8 year old gold striped maroon clown. Never has bit me but tried a couple times. We tried putting another Gold Striped Maroon in the other day to try and pair them and she didnt like him too much. kicked the crap out of the other fish. Had to return him for the clown surgeon which is still nice.

    That's what they call foreplay. Just letting the new one know who the queen was.

    I dont think it was. It didn't look to be. She was tearing his fins apart. i was as nemo would say starting to go belly up. you could literally see he was like having a heart attack. she wouldn't even let him move in the tank without attacking him. it was pretty bad. he had to hid behind a powerhead at the top corner of the tank. i just didnt want to have a dead fish on my hands.
