    I am looking for a friend for my green anemone. The porclein crab ran away and join the other crag on the other side of the tank in the purple tip nemmie.

    has anyone had experience with Fire clowns ?

    Warr: Would there not be a lot of aggression between this and your maroon??

    The maroon clown is tiny, it would be quite easy to get a bigger Fire. I just wanted to know if anyone has had experience in keeping these boys.

    i suppose that if the fish is larger than the one you got in the system,there shouldnt really be much aggression,but keep an eye out

    Yeah, Massa has suddenly woken up this season. Imagine if it rains, it will be an insane race.

    Believe me if I say different species of Clown fight, and it's normally until one or more is killed, even if you have more than one anemonie in your tank, or the fact that your tank is huge, they still fight

    I had a common clown, a tomato, a clark's clown and a maroon in my 6 foot tank long ago. The maroon minded he's own bussiness, the common clown had his own anemone and the tomato had his own anemone in the day, but at night the clarkie joined the tomato in his bed. Maybe my fish were just abnormal... like me:whistling:

    Maybe you were just unlucky Sean. Many people told me that the maroon clown is very aggressive, but the one I had was very calm which was strange considering there were 3 other clowns in my tank. I suppose not all fish in the same species are the same or react the same towards other fish. :wave2:

    When Maroons get big they get aggressive. Mine is still tiny and I reckon he is mentally scarred from the punishment he took from a Domini Damsel.
