Put in a coral, tank-bred clowns will host in almost anything

Your light is not enough, you need BIG lights for nemmies

Hi Sammy I see you are really adamant in getting a nennie, but please they are living creatures are are not the easiest things too keep, and can be a real pest in a tank that they are not happy with. I had one for 4 months and then 1 day he decided he was not happy and started moving. After destroying my rock work and getting covered 2 days later he fell in love with the one and only seio pump in my tank and that was the end of him.:(
One more thing the one I got was quite small at the LFS and after a couple of weeks he got as bit as a dinner plate.

I have two bubble-tip nennies in my Boyu 550, standard lighting, and they're doing very well indeed. Feed them a bit (calamari) to make up for the non-ideal lighting. As mentioned, powerheads are the biggest problem. Make sure you cover it properly, perhaps with a stocking.

have you not learnt yet that clowns kill corals??? or was that actually you?? :)

Sammy, please also think about pumps and the likes before you go nennie route, read lots before you get him. I have one and as incredible as the fella is, i have sleepless nights worrying about him....especilly moving into pumps and souping himself. And i have 800l for him to wonder in before he touches a pump....

research fella:)
