    Ok, do any of the sponsors have clownfish sized shock collars? My clowns need some behavior modification. They won't leave the new flame angel alone. :dft007:

    Black and White Ocellaris


    They now think the entire tank is theirs. :(

    My fuge is too small to put them it. I don't have a sump. I'm setting up a 10 gal pod tank, but I've not gotten the salinity right yet. I'll try again to catch them and put them in there as soon as it's ok.

    Kewl, when I checked, the salinity and temp were right in line with the tank!



    I put their shell in there to calm them down. Should 2-3 days be long enough?

    Not sure on the length of time but good job. They are a stunning looking pair! I've read that ocellaris is the less aggressive of the clowns when compared to percula

    We keep our two black and white ocellaris in a separate tank with hermit crabs, but generally if clownfish have something to host in then they protect whatever they host in as their territory. I assume that if theyre not hosting in something then they feel the whole tank is theirs :wacko: Maybe an anemone or pin cushion would help.

    My tank is only 5 months old, so I'm trying to wait to get a Rose Bubbletip.
