I got 2 clowns in a 10-20 Litre tank. I got them from the dame tank where I bought them but they were in a group. One is large female the other is small male would they pair up. The small male follows the female and the female doesn't mind it when it comes. So are they a pair?

    Yes they are most likely a pair as in the clownfish family all clowns are born males then in a group of males the biggest becomes female.

    Yeah thats a pair. But be carefull, if your tank is a 20G or less don't put another pair in. They could become territorial. Look out for eggs!

Wonderful addition to my aquarium. Peaceful and full of character. Very easy to care for... required a bit more time up front until adapted to the aquarium feeding "ritual".

the flame angel looks nice in appearance but this has to have been the most annoying fish ive kept. it is very territorial especially when settled in the aquarium. i kept it with a zebra moray, porcupinefish, mimic tang, and shortfin lion. it would even boss the eel and puffer around they were near its prefered piece of rockwork. it is easy to keep but a bit of a waste of money as they are high priced.

    Yry to keep them on quarantine on a kritter keepers for 2 to 3 weeks to get them used to the other fish. We have had some problems with that type of stuff and it seems that this is the easy way to get rid of the problem. It made take some time but it works most off the time

Wow lots of room! Sounds like this will be a very COOL tank once you slowly add your inhabitants! I noticed when my clowns do not have an anemone to host (which they do not need to live) if I make a little cave or cozy overhang, they will use that instead. Otherwise, hovering at the top is not a big deal, and they will adjust. They, at times like to "host" the heater or power-heads. No worries, just as long as they are not gasping for air, you are fine. With a tank that big, you can actually have another pair of clowns (not maroons, they are mean) like a pair of pink skunks, ocellaris, or clarkiis. Introduce the other pair into the other end of the tank. I had a 150 with 3 pairs of clowns, each had their own anemone and everyone was cool with each other. I had a pair of tomatoes, perculas and skunks.

Why don't you guys have a section for seahorses and pipefish? Some people might want one of those kind of fish.

    actually, it's humuhumu, not humahuma, and the full name is humuhumunukunukuapau'a. It is a Hawaiian fish and it refers specifically to the rectangular triggerfish (formerly the state fish of HI!). this comes to you from a Hawaiian. ~N

      Ben, I know that these tangs are hard to keep, But you should check your care and tank systems. I have a Powder Blue tang that has been in a 30 gal. tank with clownfish and a Potters Angel for at least 2 years. If you don't have inverts and it only a fish tank try adding some copper, I use coppersafe and haven't seen a white spot since I got him two years ago. I know that my tank is small for a tang but this fish is beautiful and fat. I need to set up my 150 and give it some more room, but so far so good. Try the copper and good luck. It works, just keep in mind you can't keep inverts with copper. Steve
