    Default Someone took a bite out of my clown

    My little clown has a chunk taken out of his tail. My tank currently has the following fish

    2 clowns
    1 blue hippo (suspect #1)
    1 yellow tang
    1 orchid dottyback (suspect #2)
    1 pajama cardinal fish
    1 filefish (on loan for aiptasia)

    The small clown hosts a forest of xenias, he hasnt attached himself to any of my 3 rbtas, so he has no defense.

    Anyone have an idea how i can keep the peace in my tank? Or how i can get him to host a nem? Is that even possible?

    I feed them frozen mysis (1 cube) once per day.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry to hear about the clownfish? Any potential for unwanted night crawlers/crabs?

    Some hermits, but they are out during the day. No other crabs i know of.
    I had some peppermint shrimp, but the minute i put them in the dottyback was in hot pursuit, havent seem em since. It is possible they are still in there as i never saw a carcass.

    I also have a few bristleworms (not by choice), but nothing massive that ive seen.

    Going to follow along for results. I got nervous adding in my 4x hermits (clowns are currently in QT), but they like to sleep towards the bottom of the tank, and blue hippo likes to nudge itself under pcv/floor, so I'm sure it'll do that with rock/sand in the tank
    Hermits def have me on the defensive side

    How long have you had your clowns my current female maroon clownfish hosts the anenome but doesn't let the male in. The male comes close and the female attacks. That's what I suspect is happening to you if the male doesn't host the anenome and female does

    I inherited them from my friend. A couple years i think. The bigger one hosts the rbta, and the smaller hosts some xenias next to it.
    He is all healed now.
