i am very excited to follow this thread you have a great opportunity to make some really cool changes... when you have a little time on a Regular PC give us some details... we are freaks for details and PIX!!!!!!!! lol

i have a question for you ... how do you like your clown? i have been thinking about them for my own tank for a while now and every one seems to enjoy them a lot but i want more input as to personality and behaviors....

I LOVE the little guy! He's gorgeous, very active, and def. has a personality to him. Has plenty of hiding places (added some more) but he's always out and about.

I haven't made the decision yet, but I'm not too sure I'll be keeping him sadly :( I really want to but the cost to keep that tank going is going to be too much I think, and I want to make sure he has a proper set up. Going to see if I can find the things he'll need for cheap, but if I can't I'll most likely rehome him to someone who can properly care for him and just set the tank up for my frogs and some small fish since it already has everything for that. If I can keep him I'll keep this updated with what I do and with tons and tons of pics!

you mentioned you have a HOB filter. You can remove the filter material out of there and put in it live rock rubble or bagged activated carbon. That'll work just fine on a 10g

i have an idea,remove the clown into a 5 gallon bucket with his current water,remove everything from the tank,clean the tank,not the filter,throw out the gravel,add 10lbs of live sand,add 10-14lbs of dry rock and then add the clown back in and maybe buy a powerhead

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll try the first one and see how that goes. If it doesn't work I'll try the second.
