    These are the latest additions to my tank. Got the bubbletips last week and could not resist getting them a pair of maroon clowns to keep them in check.
    Notice anyhting odd about the clowns?

    The clownfish are tank bred and only about 3cm long. They swam straight into the anemone once i released them!

    they my favourite clownfish. "Great attitude" is an interesting way to describe their behaviour.

    Nice healthy anemone you have there! Nice find! What else are you keeping with the clownfish? Know that these are aggressive fish who don't always play well with others. ;)

    thanks! really gives me confidence when someone of your experience says my anemone is healthy.
    It took me a while to find the anemones. These ones are clones from a fellow reefer.
    The maroons are the only fish in the tank. I know maroon clownfish well, i got given one when i just started the hobby and was stupid enough to take it before doing any research. My large maroon clown (in my main DT) would draw blood when i put my hand in the tank, but has calmed down since giving it its own anemone.
