    So I bought this little bugger when he was merely less than a CM, his is now about 1.5cm and I started noticing something...

    He first tried to host in one of my clams but could see he was struggling, then at night he tried my frog spawn and was hosting there at night UNTIL the new member of the tank arrived - my new torch.

    I noticed only at night he would go and host in the torch and in the last few days he is in this torch all the time. At the moment the torch is still fully out and doesn't seem to be to irritated but will see how its goes.

    Not sure if its a GOOD or BAD thing yet....

    Nice clownfish, but I have to say, your tank looks great too, that last photo is very nice, love the variety of corals you have and they all look super healthy too.

    Very nice! Now get your clown a mate before it gets too big, so that they can become a pair. Don't worry about the sex as one will change.

    I spend two hours a day on this tank. It gets plenty of supplements too. I love the hobby :) hopefully I won't have to travel next year and can spend more time on it :) it has a lot if coral but inroad somewhere fish love structure and the coral is creating that at the moment.

    Really? I didn't know that, can it be any type of clown or does it have to same color etc? I didn't get it a mate as I thought it would kill another clown if I introduced one now .....

    Thank you for letting me know!

    A Beautiful place!

    Get the same species to pair up, different species could fight.
