    I have a maroon clownfish to swap for something interesting of similar value.
    Fish/ Corals/ crabs etc. He gets bullied by the larger Clarkii and so tends to hide in his cave all day - not much fun to look at. He's not damaged in any way - just antisocial !
    I'm on the West Rand, Joburg if anyone is interested.

    Nah not at all - just hangs out all by himself and keeps out of the other clownfishes way. Seems pretty passive. Can mail you a pic if you like.

Im not partin wit mine So once mine is healed i'l see if leavin the lights off for few days then reintroducing him back to the MT but im plannin on removing my clarks for 2weeks

    Thanks Kavir I'll check that thread out.
    I changed the aquascaping today to try and give them more hiding places and territory so lets see how it goes. I was given 3 different kinds of clown fishes when i first got the tank as gifts- so I'd still be keen to swap him for something else.

    So X Faktor - that answers your question too - he was added along with the other clowns at the same time. 1 large Clarkii, 1 medium sized maroon, and a small tomato clown.

    What have you got to offer ? I'd be keen on some coral, or crabs/shrimps. I don't have much in the tank at the moment so I'd consider anything interesting really. Only have 7 fish right now - nothing else at all. So... I'm open to suggestions !

    Eish man. I am only starting to stock my corner tank now. I really dont want to take the clown and then have to sell it later on because it is disrupting my tank. So I want to take it but I also dont want to-understand?
