Your Dad built all that?? Now I see why he wants to help you with the remodel...he has talent!

I love your pictures. What's an alien eye favia worth? Either way you got a steal, you always do

PS. I love how tiny your clown looks in that FTS.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

my father built it, hes always building and tinkering. i guess thats where the creativity comes in on my part, plus my mother likes crafts, older sister has a degree in fine arts, my grandfather used to paint.. i guess its in my blood.

heres the alien eye
MrCoral.com
i want to say mines atleast that size if not bigger, i got it for $30

thanks! the clowns about 1/2-1'' and the black ones about 1-2''
i did this to increase the chances that they will pair, however recently the black clown has been showing aggression towards the orange and chasing it out of the anemone. idk.

I knew it, you stole it!

So, two different species of clowns will pair up? Pair up as in buddies, or pair up as in breeding??

no, 2 different species will NOT pair up, infact that would be disaster

they are same species just different variations. one is orange misbar (the bar is incomplete) and one is black.
theres so many species (occ, perc, maroon, clarkii..) and variations of clowns ( misbar, naked, snowflake, black, onyx... )

my clowns are false perculas

id say nemo (from the movie) is an ocellaris but its possible of it being a false perc as well.

Is that a color that appears in nature or is this a "manmade" item? It's bizarre looking.

i believe it is selectively bred and bred and bred to achieve this coloration, just like the naked clowns which have no white at all.

Wow, i missed all the new pics! looking good... perhaps i should do some b/w so that it'll hide some GHA that still persists in my tank

Some of the coloration of certain clowns do occur in nature it's just not often seen. That Snowflake Clown was only 400 at the link you gave! My lfs is selling theirs at $800!!!

Just hear (i don't know why i only just heard about it) that MACNA is going to be in Jersy this year?! is that correct, if so and i'm able to make it, i'm stopping by your house! or just would like to meet you in person and what not.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...
