We have had Rin and Stimpy (our two firefish) for 2 years in our 135 gal aquarium. They have been hiding in a rock off and on for over 2 months now. Today we realized why!!! We have baby fire fish about 1//4" long swimming near their rock. Shrimp is the only thing to ever reproduce in our tank. We are so excited. Hopefully a few of them will grow big enough to be safe in the tank.

happened to stumble across an excellent specimen, and could not pass it up, as i knew i would never see another one in such good shape anytime soon; not to mention the fact that i only paid $55 for a fish that would eaisly go for $90 plus any where else! I was worried at first that my existing tang (a 2.5 inch desjardin sailfin) and it would not get along. Within an hour the 2 were swimming about the tank! Talk about luck! Eats like a horse and is doing great!

I owned one of these for several months and was my pride and joy. A very beautiful fish and wonderful to watch/interact with. I had lots of rockwork for him to hide amongst and he loved every part of it. I had to trade him in unfortunately because he tried to eat my powder blue tang. As soon as the grouper was out of the tank in a quarantine tank (to allow the tang to become acclimated), all of my other fish that had been hiding all the time came out. I put two and two together, and unfortunately the answer meant trading him in to my local fish store for in store credit. Probably one of the best fish I have owned, I just wish I had planned better as far as compatability.

Ive always kept a flame hawk and never thought of them as shy or difficult to keep.mine is a hand feeder,but be aware of their tendancy to leap out of the tank...i lost one after 3 years that way...what a bust...These fish are quite personable and will add alot of personality to your tank.This one i call scooter-and on occasion he will rest on my hand as i do water changes...I would highly recommend this fish to any keeper...if you are new to the hobby...this one will win you over in no time...best of luck...mj

If you add them to a "mostly fish only" tank containing hardy corals such as mushrooms and polyps, it will soon become a "true fish only" tank. My new puffer eats my mushrooms as if they were pancakes hot off the griddle! :-)

There is a lot of people that encourage others to buy clown fish because of a movie that they saw and are really clueless about how much knowledge goes into owning one of these fish. I suggest researching EVERYTHING that goes into owning a clown fish BEFORE buying one so that the same thing that happened with the dalmation dogs after the movie "101 Dalmations" came out doesnt happen with clown fish and "Finding Nemo". If you are thinking about a clown fish, do yourself and the fish a favor and research them at http://www.reefcentral.com Go to the forum "New to the Hobby" and ask questions! Also, get a book and read it!

i have kept cowfish for 20 years and i own a marine only shop and i have never seen a captive cowfish over 23cm. I had one who was called moo and lived like 10 years. all other captive cowfish only grew to around 20cm. moo lived in a 180 gallon tank with two clowns all his life and they were completely fine and super tame:)

great site. I have just aquired a regal tang, in addition to my other tangs (yellow and lipstick )all juveniles. they go well together in my community tank of three clowns, one flame angel, and three damsels. I mix the foods so they all get a variety of food. this site is just what a beginner needs and the info is invaluable. from Mal New Zealand.

I have had my powder blue tang Starfish for 9 years! I had no idea a saltwater fish in captivity would live this long. He is only about four inches long, but so beautiful. He is like a true family pet and I will be sad to see him go. He loves brine shrimp and flakes, and dines on the algae in my tank daily. Truly a beautiful fish.
