- - tomato clowns

i have two very small tomato clowns one is slightly larger than the other when they were first introduced into the tank the bigger one was just swimming up to the little one like he was nipping but he never did the nipping has reduced but i will still him chase the little one every once in while. I'm hoping that the larger one will become the female and they will become a mated pair. what are the odds of this happening and will the nipping stop?

the "larger, more agressive" clown will most likely become the female. its not guarenteed but chances increase when buying 2 different size clowns.
just for the heads up, tomato clowns are probally the most agressive of clownfish.
what size is your tank, and how long has it been up and running?

its a twenty four gallon aquapod and for about a year and a half

Are there other fish in the tank?

according to his signature, its a 24 with 2 tomato clowns, a snowflake eel and 2 chromis.
i may be mistaken but the eel will eat the fish.

no there is not any other fish and the eel is tiny probably about 10-12 inches.

i'm getting some chromis the next time they come to my lfs

chromis don't have a very high success rate though it is possible to keep them, but you have to use high # of fish. you need at least 7 or so.

I had 5 last time and planning on getting 3-4
|onefish2fish ||11-11-2008 11:50 PM |
thats going to make your aquapod over stocked IMO
and yes, i believe the eel will eat the fish, just give it time
also your tomato clowns in time will prob. kill the chromis too, as they are very aggresive
