I think it should be okay! You never truly know
Yeah, that's what I am thinking. If I decide to get one, I will probably pick up an in tank acclimation box or whatever it's called, JIC.

Sounds good! Good luck :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:
Thanks. I think I am going to make a thread about it just to make sure I'll be alright. Thanks for your help.

Meet the newest addition to my tank, Nemo! Today I got an ocellaris clown, and so far he is doing great! He is swimming around, and loving his new home!

This surprised me alot, but the bully is not him. It's my TSB (Tail Spot Blenny!) This shocked me. The TSB will go up and dart at him. I can't tell what he is doing, but so far there is no visible damage to the clown. It also looks like it's not happening as much as it was a few hours ago.

Here's a few photos!

Awww he looks so good! I'm so glad you got yourself a clown finally :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:. Seems like you'll have more activity as they swim around so much! That's interesting how the blenny is being mean lol, looks like you might have a nice clown.

How's everything else coming along? How's the RFA? Also is that your hammer I see in the back of the first image? It's looking goooood! I actually have a hammer coming this next week, it's a peach one! No clue where to place it, suggestions are welcome. I have a few other really cool things coming, excited to share then once they come in!

Can't wait to see what you get!

Everything I'd doing great! My RFA still hasn't moved, so I think it means that it's happy. Yes, that was my hammer! Thank you! It's puffed up alot since I put it in the tank!

I will hop over to your thread and look at spots that you can place your hammer!

I just wanted to show pictures of the awesome Duncan growth, or maybe puffiness, but still.

When I got it:

It will before you know it! Mine grew up to this in a blink of an eye! Have you tried feeding it yet? They have a really cool feeding response and it helps then explode in growth.

Yes! I've fed some of my corals once already! I might do so every week or two depending on my parameters.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Thought I would just give a quick update on everything.

My clown has some white spots and damage to the tail, from I assume the blenny. The aggression is still happening, but not as much. I am still so surprised that the clown hasn't fought back yet!

Other than that, everything else is doing great!

Happy tuesday Walker, Despite what is happening to you with the fish, I am happy to hear that everything else is going well, you will see that the fights end and then everyone will be happy.
