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.

    They get pretty big though so make sure that you have a big enough tank and know what you're doing with it.

Does anyone think it would be a good idea to add an Oman to my 55gal tank that consists of two tomato clowns, a snowflake eel, and an African red starfish? If not what clown fish, and if no clown fish what fish?

    Tomoato clowns don't do well with other types of clownfish because of being territorial and aggressive, so I would recommend against adding an Oman.

Great Fish ! I had one for 13 yrs in first a 180 than 300. He was about 7 inches across! I was pretty sad when it died a few weeks ago. I now have a little juvenile in quarantine that I hope will live even longer than my original!

    Did you ever have problems with them cutting their lips on the love rock in your tank? I think that's what got her cut up at least. Her upper lip skin is flapping with her 'breaths' and I just got her like 2 weeks ago.

Can I get one or two Niger Trigger fish in my 55gal tank? Will they bother my two clowns, snowflake eel, and my African red starfish?

My scopa just died. Had it for about 1 week. He was ok but never ate. Yesterday when I closed the light, I noticed my sailfin tang was constantly attacking him once the lights were closed. I can't say if it was a first but I'm guessing he didn't like to share 74g with him. Ah well, I'll have to be careful what fish I get with the sailfin unless it was just random behavior.

I am thinking of getting a dog face puffer, what other fish do well with it and what should I feed it?

    The Dog Face Puffer (Arothron nigropunctatus) are large carnivorous predators that can reach up to 14'  and need a tank of at least 100 gallons. They are considered Semi-aggressive, because they will eat snack sized fish as well as any crustaceans (not good for a reef tank!), but they are not scrappers. So look for tankmates that are too large to be eaten and of similar habits, like lionfish or frogfish. They may also do fine with larger angelfish or tangs, and possibly more passive triggers. But their diet preference rules out small fish like damsels and clownfish.
