    Hi Guys,

    what happened to the special i saw online last night??
    my GF just arrived at the store and bought 2 small picasso clowns @ R995 odd (cant remember the proper price) when last night in your thread you stated small clowns were R595 odd?? and med to large were R995.

    i've just seen these clowns and they definately classify as small, if not extra small.
    so why over charge her?
    was there a mistake made?

    Please respond urgently as i will ask her to return to the shop for you to refund the difference

    i did, they told me they classify the 2cm fish as med/large. and that 1cm is classified as a small fish. in anyones books that classifies as small. so not impressed.

    i was told that Brian will respond here as he was busy with a client when i called

    Size is in the eye of the beholder.

    These fish are captive bred, so their size classification is generally a lot smaller than the normal ones we see.

    so does that mean for instance that in a tank with 3 regal tangs, the 1cm 1 is classified as small. the 2cm as medium and the 3cm as large?
    that doesnt add up. at least to me :whistling:

    i dont agree with this though, as percular clown species goes they all are the same size. captive bread or not.

    That doesnt make sense.
    You cant compare the sizes of different fish species.

    But i do agree with you. I would also think that that size clown would be a small.

    @Furbz here's the link to the special, it was posted on our facebook page
    https://www.facebook.com/JungleAquatics

    We definitely have two sizes, small (which I dont think your wife saw as there's a huge difference between the two) and med/lrg.

    We haven't posted any sizes as it's always changing from the supplier on captive breds.
    After measuring them just now the smalls are 2.5-3cm, mediums are 3.5-4cm.

    A grade snowflake clownfish quarantined for 4 weeks, eating well, disease free and with the current exchange rate @ R995 is a really *really* good price for the mediums...

    Please pop in and have a look at the difference...?

    Ive never known Bryan to do anyone in.

    All this easily avoided by just chatting to him and asking before buying

    fully agree, i wasnt there for the purchase as my gf went there to buy them for me as a bday gift! lucky me hey!

    anyway, i have been chatting to her, she recons the one fish is 2.5 to 3cm. and the other 3 to 3.5cm.
    she is just finishing acclimatising them. when she pops them in she will take a pic of them next to a ruler to clarify.

    when i saw them they did look very small

    just to clarify, i'm not here to bash anyone. just to clarify. i only saw the fish for a short period of time and thought they were to small to be deemed "medium"

    Maybe they should just be offered as XXS and XS clownfish!
    As guys be honest you can't call a 3 cm clownfish in anybody's book a medium!
    Not trying to rock the boat, but it might be better advertising, and not giving any customers a false sense of size??
