    Your clowns are going through puberty :)

    They are maturing, so watch the fights and egg laying coming soon

    I had a small little percula clown (aprox 3cm) for about two weeks, then I introduced a bigger clown about 5cm. I know that they can change their sex, and that the bigger one would then become the female...

    My clowns have also started getting black spots all over... So Warr, let me get this right, they are maturing, and preparing to make Marlin Jnrs and Coral Jnrs? If so, is that a good thing?:suspicious:
