    Good Morning,

    The clowns started off the same size but the female has grown to almost double the male. She is about 3". The Green Nepthea home they come with is about 7"-8" high and wide. $40 for fish and coral. Tank needs to be at least 50 gal.

    Wow ! what a nice healthy Flame Angle I got from you . The fish made the transfer just fine into it's new home . It dashed into the rocks at first , but now is out and swimming about .

    I saw the two clowns and the coral that you are asking $40 for all. What a great deal that could be for someone .

    It was a pleasure to meet you,thank you for the fish .

    Final end to the tank above . . . can no longer control the green algea and need to regroup and start over.

    The last remaining . . . . . final contents of two mated clowns and their Green Nepthea home are FREE to a good home of 50+ gallon tank. I really do not want to take them to the local fish store . . . .

    Anyone ???

    No, but at that price (“Free”— Lol), anyone within driving distance from you who doesn’t take them off your hands needs their head examined. ;)

    I could probably find them a home in one of our displays if you could travel to Albany. We could add them to the new Soft Coral Lagoon display after the quarantine period.

    I suppose I should clarify where they would be going. I'm the curator over at Via Aquarium in Schenectady, NY. We are a small public aquarium with 37 exhibits ranging from 150g to 18000g. I'm also a hobbyist, and am usually on the boards in that fashion, but figured they would fit in at work so I'd speak up.

    haha. Thank you. Sounds like an amazing facility. I will actually be up in Menards in January. If still in my possession I will definitely reach out to you at that time if that's okay.

    Thank you everyone who have given homes to my beloved fish. This breakdown has mixed feelings but retirement and sale of house is calling.
    Finally finished breaking down, cleaning and organizing equipment. I have attached a .pdf file listing everything I have with original price, 50% price and pictures.

    Happy to give EVERYTHING, an entire ready to go setup to someone for 60% discount. Total for all is $1,450.

    Please take a look and PM me with any questions.
