Every time you move a business to Asia or Mexico from the United States you make the World a more polluted place . They just ain't got the environmental standards .This reminds me of a Climate Change story, you can't deny it's happening and the outcome is terrible but could possibly be prevented if we just change our habits?
The clownfish were good Samaritans administering a powerful sedative to calm your drowning damsel-in-distress. The bubble tip got a nice fresh meal and the damsel is done with suffering now and in a much better place than you put it.
We all get-it in the end.
A little over 2 years ago I got back into the hobby. I purchased 2 small baby clowns. The fish who became the female was by far the most aggressive fish I’ve ever owned. I despised this fish. Every time I put my arm in the tank it would attack me, startle the hell out of me. When she jumped out of the tank and perished. Wasn’t very upset at all.So I removed a live rock from my display and didnt realize one of my damsel was hiding in there. He was out for a few minute and I put him back into the display. He was alive trying to catch his breath and then suddenly my 2 clowns dragged him into my bubbletip. RIP damsel. Couldn't react fast enough.
Mine were regular Ocellaris. I have a pair now that are nice. Female is black snowflake and male is a regular black clown.I don’t know if it’s a trend or not, but many of these posts seem to be describing “designer” clowns, (What I call GMO clowns). Either way, it’s always better to be lucky than good!
I think now we are on to something. I don’t have a nem, my clowns sleep behind my heater (i could get a smaller one that would fit in the rear, but then they wouldn’t have a home!). They are also really peaceful.Does the hosting behavior inspire more aggression? Seems like the most brutal stories here are when clowns are with a BTA or similar.
Mine are apparently some of the calmest clowns ever, despite being perculas. The only real difference I can see is that they’d rather school with my chromis than try and host anything.
That might be bad news for me then! I just bought a baby BTA. Maybe they won’t notice it for a while!I think now we are on to something. I don’t have a nem, my clowns sleep behind my heater (i could get a smaller one that would fit in the rear, but then they wouldn’t have a home!). They are also really peaceful.
