Another reason why clowns are dirty, dumb and retarded fish...
Absolutely hate em!
Only some (most) are aggressive lol. If you hand feed them they learn to not bite you haha. Mine are really fun to watch and I'm glad I have them. Agree they are dumb though, they swim into the highest current areas and can barely move but try and stay there. Mine even sleep partially out of the water sometimes. They'll sleep floating sideways at the top like they're dead but they keep swimming. It's pretty funny
Ahh, I thought mine were the only ones that do that...they sleep so close to the powerhead and it looks like they are barely able to withstand the flow before getting sucked against the side. During the day they swim around the back corner of the tank.
Hahaha...why don't you tell us what you really think about them!
Mine 'developed' some fin issue a while ago and I said is she dies it will not be the end of the world...of course she survived and just got bigger and a little nastier, like she knew I did not care that much about her. That said she has turned into a beautiful fish and I secretly like her...just don't tell her that!
You are such a bad person...but I am happy to know I was not the only one!
Thanks for sharing! I'll definitely will protect myself. I knew, clowns could be a bit nippy, but to be down right assassins, brings a whole new meaning to clownfish.
Thanks for helping us all learn from your experience. Who knew?
I'm going to place my tank next to the back door and try to train my clowns to attack burglers.
here's how I would deal with it: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/stupid-mistakes-anyone-else.322344/page-2#post-3996338
Stealing the clown armor idea!! Just contacted some clown in china that's going to hook me up!
Man I thought my flurry clown was bad with attacking me when ever i am near the tank but never left the water to attack me lol. He might be trying to take you out for putting him in this 'cage' lol
I've had a patient bitten in his privates by a snake (while peeing,) and I thought that was awful BUT an eye bitten by a clown fish! wow, the amount of bacteria, the antibiotic coverage and the pain the poor person must have experienced is unbelievable , did he have a corneal graft? can he see? any infections I genuinely feel very sorry for them, but I did enjoy the comment about the clowns!
Hope you are recovering, glad it was not too serious. I will be wearing all my proper PPE when cleaning my tank. Get well soon.
Just about died. LoL
WOW...speedy recovery man! Sorry to hear that...but just a couple of days ago I bought two standard clowns (not maroon) and one foxface (its my first SW tank)...not sure I did the right thing after what I have heard here
Be careful Bro! That beast in your tank will poke
You in the eye.
Female White Wyoming used to nip at my hand. Turn the tables and chased her, then hand fed her, she's now behaving like a well trained dog. No more anxious fish.
Sorry to hear about ur eye, but that fish would be out.
What I'd like to see now is a clownfish with a scar and knife photoshopped onto em.
Killer clown fish.
