    Sorry to hear about the losses. Sounds like you have a good perspective on everything though. Hope everything settles down for you real soon.

    Thanks again for the support guys. Slowly but surely I'll build the stock back up. Still thinking about a dozen clowns (mixed variety). :)

    Hey all .. tremendous thread and def my motivation to start my own clownfish and anenome only tank (i hope) ... although looking at this, one question I have is, and I believe it to be a legitimate one, is that everything I read is that you can only have one pair of clowns per tank. Yet this amazing and gorgeous setup has more then that. How is this possible and I do hope to gain some better understanding on this.

    hey guys. the tank is still up but not much going on with it. ever since the tank leak last year, I haven't gotten the "reef" bug to hit me again. almost tore it down before we went on vaca last month, but decided not to since I still have 6 clowns in there (4 hybrids: Picasso x Black Ice parents & 2 Snowflakes). when I QT my remaining fish, things went really south as I kept losing fish left and right. I tried my best to do hypo but I guess that's not enough. I really think that the stress was the main culprit of the demise. a few of my clowns from the original batch are still alive and have already started breeding for a friend of mine. I'm just so happy that I traded some of them to him. hopefully, I'll get back to this again. I probably won't do anything else than a clownfish/anemone tank. I really enjoyed having it while it lasted.

    Marvin, Glad to hear some of the original clowns are doing well and that you decided not to tear down the tank. We understand how hard it can be to find your motivation after suffering a catastrophic failure.

    We are sorely missing you and your inspirational pics and videos...

    Thanks M&T. I'm living vicariously through your tank and the others I've spent a lot time following through the years. :)



    got rid of them as well. my tank literally gets an hour or photoperiod, just enough for the clowns to get fed. I don't have a lot of time to scrape algae and such atm. just doing top off every week. I'm looking forward to hittin' yah up for a Sunburst when the time comes. keep her happy and splitting. :)



    Thank you. and no worries. kinda enjoying the extra time for now and exploring different things. ie: running and working out more. trust me, I'll be back sooner or later. still have saltwater in my veins. haha...

    How did you introduce so many clowns in the same tank? I am setting a 105 gal and have an existing pair of black ice and would like at least another pair of hybrids. Any tips on how to introduce them?
