    Clownfish Jumping from my Fluval Evo

    Has anyone else with a Fluval Evo had a problem with clownfish jumping out? I lost one last night, and this is the second time a clownfish has jumped out in the ~5 years I've had the tank. I guess I should cover the little opening in the front. Does anyone have good ideas for what to use to...

    Clownfish pair questions

    Could I add a bonded pair of clownfish to a 30 gallon with a six line wrasse and a canary blenny? Would they all get along? If they do get along fine would that be overstocking? Thanks in advance!
