I just added a velvet damsel with the clarkii clown and the clarkii won't leave the damsel alone.

    Clowns and Damsels are in the same family. They all tend to be incredibly territorial. Your clown's prolly just letting the newcomer know that (s)he's the one running the show, lol. Honestly, if the clown were removed for whatever reason and you were to introduce another clown or damsel, the Velvet would be the exact same way to them. Or later, say you were to add a Three Striped Damsel, Goby, or whatever, the likelihood of Clarkii and Velvet tag teaming them would almost be guaranteed. I have had my Clarkii (Omen) for over two years, is @ 5" long. Omen goes after the Watchmen Goby, went after the SUPER docile firefish (poor little guy), and even goes after the little scooter Blenny occasionally. Usually they tend to work it out. It's totally hard to watch sometimes, esp when there's more than one picking on just one. Alas, that's their nature. They're a-holes, really. What's helped me in the past is getting a $5 in-tank breeding net and either use it as a "time out" for the a-hole or to give the other one a break without having to set up yet ANOTHER tank. Good luck!

I have a Clarkii in a 72 gallon bow front with some pretty tough tankmates, a niger trigger, picasso trigger, a kole tang and a dragon wrasse and he has no problems holding his own. He hosts a condy anemone of all things, which are not normally host to any clown fish, and anyone in the tank that gets too close to his anemone is reminded that it belongs to him in no uncertain terms. I've read that they are a peaceful fish but I have yet to see that side of mine and wouldn't recomend putting one in with smaller or timid tank mates. That being said, if you have at least a semi aggresive tank I would highly recommend one, they are one of the most entertaining fish I have ever had the pleasure of owning.

These fish are really wonderful to watch. They are very hardy, take any food very easily, and don't harm any corals or inverts. It's a very good fish for beginners. And btw, this site ROCKS....!!!

Hey Ya'll,

Quick question, Never maintained a salt water aquarium before. My son has a 24"x24"x24" tank. We moved it from his apartment to my home, since he's going to Afghanistan for 1 year.

We moved it on the 26th of Dec. 2009, The flamming angel has a white tip on it's face and beginning of tail is whitish. Thought it may have been stress due to the move, but has not regained color since. Bought some 100% organic fungicide for that.

The tank has been working fine. Last night my wife fed the fish. One small & one large common clown. This afternoon I found the large one on the floor, must have jumped out overnight.

Looking to replace it - But are they compatible separately? they were both as a pair.

This fish should be introduced last beacause of its territorial and aggressive behavior. Moving the live rock or decorations around once a month or so also helps prevent too much aggression and territorial outbursts torward other fish. It is an extremely robust fish.
They also are very hardy. just don't put them with passive fish.
