OK so recently I had purchased two healthy looking ocellaris clown fish from my lps and today I was wondering if it was normal if they bite each others fins and they swim together to so I don't think it is bad but can you help me?

"I just got a dwarf lionfish and I'm already in love with him. He's in a 30 gallon tank with a yellow tang, a picasso triggerfish, a clown triggerfish and a panther grouper. I love the way he watches and then boom! And the fish is gone. I would recommend this to anybody with a semi aggressive saltwater aquarium.
some fish lover!"

Your tank is way to over stocked for the fish you have. You need to do more research before just filling your tank up with whatever you please. They are living creatures try using better judgment with them. You should have at least a 75 gallon tank for those fish. They will most likely die soon if they are not dead already.

    If you are going to keep the lionfish you need to get rid of the triggerfish and grouper too big for a 30 gal. aquarium, not fair to the fish to over stock the aquarium.

    I agree with that, as I am about to pick up a fuzzy dwarf lionfish and introduce him to a yellow tang, blonde naso, coral beauty, blue tang and gold stripe maroon clownfish. No fish is over 6" and they are in a six foot long 150 gallon tank established mini reef. Those fish like mine will exceed that tank and probably mine, in a short span of time. Please research what you are doing before you do it. The nitrates alone will make the fish less tolerable to the water changes you will have to do keeping all those med to large fish and a lionfish. I change 40 to 50 gallons every 2-3 weeks and that keeps my Nitrates at .08 ppm to .10 ppm.

    Listen you have actually got 2 rather agressive fish and as they grow they will most likely kill your other fish especially considering your tank size. If you want your your fish to survive then you'll need a much bigger tank probably 110 gallons and if you want anenomes say goodbye to your clown trigger fish.

    4 words, GET A BIGGER TANK!
  • Bill Vasalofsky - 2014-05-29
    A Panther Grouper can get up to 2 feet long and you are reccomending a 75 Gallon tank for that and two triggers, and a lion fish?  I saw a cool video of a Grouper eating a Volitan Lionfish on YouTube.  Those Clown Triggers aren't the nicest fish either.  You're really not supposed to put Trigger Fish in the same tank either.  Just some thoughts.  You probably won't have to worry about the 2 foot Grouper because they'll probably all die before it gets that big.

Saddleback Clownfish are an amazing fish to keep. Being one of the larger species of Clownfish (Such as Clarkii's or Maroon's) they're not particularly picky about what anemone to host. I have an interbreeding pair of a female Saddleback clown, and a male Clarkii Clown, hosting a Condylactis anemone. Now, keep in mind that being a larger clownfish species, they are also a little bit more aggresive than other species (Percula, Ocellaris, Snowflakes.) If you're aiming to interbreed, be strategic. Refer to species of fish that have the same relative body shape, and aggression. Overall Benefits of keeping a Saddleback : 10!! Very interesting fish, with a very interesting personality!

Hey guys I just need some help. My snowflake eel has been acting strange recently. After my coral beauty died the snowflake may have eaten him cause I haven't found the body yet and recently he tried to eat my pregnant tomato clown. I don't want him to kill her but I don't want to get rid of him I'm going to purchase a 30 gal tank this week. Please help, thanks.

Ok so I recently got a decent sized coral beauty for my 55 gal and he did great for the first day but on the third day he started break out from marine velvet I know how to treat velvet I think but tell me anyways cause I'm not sure. Also he broke out with ick which is easy to take care of but I'm borrowing a 10 gal quarantine tank and how long should I keep him in there and is there other ways to treat marine velvet besides formoulin chemical please help?

I'm wondering if anyone knows exactly what fish can go with my two tomato clowns, they are very calm and never hurt any of my other fish I used to have. In fact I used to have a blue devil damsel and an assorted damsel and a black belly trigger and the two tomato clowns and nothing bad happened except my trigger killed the damsels. But nothing else bad happened. To this day I have the two tomato clowns, a snowflake eel probably about 9-10in long, and an African Red Starfish and my clowns swim next to my eel lots of time during feeding time and during the day. Thanks.

    These clownfish are rather territorial and can be aggressive (especially if there is an anemone present - which you say there is not so that wouldn't apply to you). They actually get along with most other marine fish except other species of clownfish. Don't add any other species of clowns or they will most likely fight! Also, make sure that you don't put fish in that are big enough to eat your clowns either! You could try angelfish, wrasses, tangs, or many other types. Do not add dottybacks however.

    Ok thanks.

    How about damsels or bangii or pajama cardinal fish and to this day I recently added a coral beauty and for some reason my tomatos are relatively peaceful.

We just added a powder blue tang to our tank and our coral angel killed it within three days! It has no trouble with the other fish. I'm a bit apprehensive to add any new fish to our tank in case he kills them. Is this normal?

    What is the size of your tank,I to have experienced this problem and the answer to mine was there wasn't enough space in the tank.
  • Fishnerd2000 - 2014-04-14
    I'm just guessing that first of all you probably need a bigger tank and possibly should have added the coral beauty last.

Last year for Father's Day my daughter gave me this little black with white stripes fish, about 2' long. I didn't know that was a zebra eel, today is about 12' long and still growing.
