    Evening Folks, I'm still deliberating over the tank in my office idea

    So after discussing the budget with my "real Boss" - my wife :)

    She asked some good questions
    • What do you want to keep the most
    • WRT fish
    • WRT inverts / corals / anemones
    • How much can we afford ... LOL
    • Etc.
    Anyway after browsing all the forums (local & others), the following really appeals to me - for an office tank

    • Shallow Reef
    • Easy & Hardy Corals
    • Exclusive Clown Fish Tank (A. Ocellaris only)
    • An anemone (after 6 months)
    So my questions are as follows (circulation will be closed loop)

    • Can I keep 8 to 10 different A. Ocellaris clowns in one tank?
    • If so can I have an anemone or two (or does this complicate the issues with having clown fish)
    • If so - what is the "best" anemone to look after
    My ideal would be some Snowflakes, Naked Clowns, Midnights, Misbar etc.

    So any thoughts, ideas and suggestions are welcome please :thumbup:

    You might like this Link...it covers all the different Anemonefish and also mentions "which Nennie for which Fish"...if memory serves me right...you can have more than one type,in pairs, but I think you have to have a big Tank...like one pair in the one corner and another pair on the side...something like that....I do stand corrected...:p
    Clownfish, Clown Fish Species, Facts About Clown Fish, and Clown Fish Images. ...I just fell in love with a Pair of Black Percula Clownfish...and a three-band clownfish..13cm!!:thumbup:
