Hi guys I have two questions for you all. First of all recently I got a pair of ocellaris and I'm wondering what kind of anemone goes with them and is it normal for them to bite each others fins? They only did it yesterday but is it OK? All they do now is swim next to each other. Thanks.

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?

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!

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.

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.

    Mixing species of clownfish is not suggested. Clownfish are extremely competitive and aggressive towards other species of clowns, and some even with their own species. The Ocellaris Clownfish is the most peaceful and you can keep several of this species together. Some of the other clown fish can be keep in pairs, like the Tomato Clownfish and the Clark's Clownfish, but others like the Maroon Clown will do best kept singly.

    Well really you can put as much as you want just keep some distance from each other

    Dont listen to the above people that talk about clownfish needing to be kept several females to one male. That is impossible considering clownfish biology. The largest specimen will always be a female and all others will be males. The largest male will be the breeding partner, until the female dies, then he morps into a female and the chain continues...

so Im starting a Cube tank for these bueatiful trues that came into our shop last week... they are a pair and the most flawless that I HAVE EVER seen! So my question is in a smaller cube what can I put w them eventually... i was thinking a small dragonet when tank is cycled thru. but clowns will prob not put up well with say a sea horse? I will also get a bubble tip for them cant do much for fish in a 14g cube. I was assured since they are already mated theat the 14 g should be plenty... actually I was told 1 10 would be fine lol..... not gonna do any more 'swimming' fish.... green spottendragonet stay small or scooter. notbig enough for lawnmower unfortunately. or wathman goby or citron clown goby.l.. any suggestions

Hi everyone, thanks in advance but I do come cross a problem.

There are lots of stories I've heard o.a. will adopt bta. I have the both and my o.a. have paired. Yet they seemingly accept one piece of live rock as host and schooled around it and never swim afar. They have even swum to my bta as close as several inches.

What am I supposed to do to make my pair accept bta as host and swift them from the rock? I tried some means but seemingly none of them worked but the means stressed them and bta
so is there any solution or I must purchase a pair of maroons or clarkiis or whatever supposed to share symboints in the nature?

Many many big thanx.

    If you are desparate try putting a predator in the tank but only if your really desparate as the clowns will find safety in the anenomes tentacles. Also get 2 anenomes as the clowns may fight over the anenome but I'd get two anenomes and leave the clowns be but do not introduce glass[aptasia] anenomes they breed like wild fire and the clowns wont go near them but anyway have fun.

    Yes that is fine but when you are out of Moss (Sea hair) Return it to to the store. unless you can train to eat fish food. Good luck!
