I have a large pair of Tomato clownfish and a small lemon peel mimic tang. Today the female clown had the Tang in her mouth. I had to thump her to get her to let go. Why do you guys think the clown would attack the tang like that?

    Tomato or Red Clownfish, Amphiprion frenatus, can be an agressive fish and have a tendency to become more agressive as they mature. If a fish will fit in another fishes mouth, chances are it will.

    I used to have 2 clowns that would nip tank-mate's tails off and then drag them into their anemone, usually at night. It took us nearly a year to figure out where our fish were disappearing to. Anyhow, damsels can be aggressive, especially toward a small, defensless Mimic-Tang. I suggest keeping everyone well fed. Eventually, your Mimic Tang will grow it's little tail spurs and the clown will quit.

My sister has a cleaner wrasse in her tank for years now. I usually study up on fish that I plan to purchase but didn't this one and purchased one today. I thought is was dead because it was curled up in a shell. It wasn't dead but I wish the seller had told me they don't usually survive. They never said a word about it. My levals are great and I have I hope plenty of fish for it to clean. Ill say a prayer for my new fish as I always do when adding a new fish to my aquarium.

    Sounds like you know what you are doing.  I am sure he will do well.  The issue is usually the fishh keeper not giving proper care.

I've had a shark egg for 6 weeks and it did not hatch yet. I wonder if it is going to hatch.

Hey, I got a bamboo shark and today when I did a water change it started acting strange swimming in loops and I have to sit by the tank because it lands on its back. I'm hoping it's just something that will go away cus Bruce was just fine till I did the water change.

    Usually something like that is because of stress or the conditions of the tank. Check the water, temperature PH etc and make sure all is OK. Attached is Animal World Article which summarizes various diseases but also behavior things. Scroll down and look up symptoms and recommended treatment is there. OK?

    Well sad to say it died and my blue tang died and a camel shrimp died as well it was because I got a fish that was ill and had tb and fin rott and ich and I went by the instructions on the bottle and on the second day of treatment is when all hell broke out it was that nox ich treatment but my cc seastar, clown fish, damsel, snowflake eel, big camel shrimp, hermit crabs, sally light foot, all seem to be doing well. I'm just glad I didn't lose all my fish. P.s. if you get a fish that has a sunk in stomach and won't compete for food get it out it has tb which can wipe out an aquarium in days.

Hello, I have an 2inch long old wife and it sometimes eats plankton. It is not taking flakes, but I hope it will soon.

Old wife are found along the east coast right up to southern Queensland. They are supposed to be really common but i haven't seen one yet. p.s. i thought they grow to 25cm, that's what it says in my Australian sea fishes book.
