    Keep a close eye on those two fish. In the short term, I would be more worried about the damsel. Once the damsel picks a territory for his own, he will defend it (to the death in some cases) and as you have him in a 10 gallon, that won't eave a lot of room for the clown to go to.

    You likely have about a year before that clown fish starts to get to get closer to his average adult size (which is around 5 inches).

    Even when you up grade your tank to a 40 gallon, you still may have to rehome one of the fish as both are semi-aggressive and the damsel will become territorial.

    Just some concerns to keep a eye open for.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Is that a plastic band on the LR, lol? Did you get it from Petco?
    Haha, yeah that one piece is from Petco... And only during feeding time, but the Damsel is holdings its own by flaring its fins right back at the clown which doesn't seem to phase the clown one bit

    Interesting... ok, well I guess I can just give away my Damsel to my cousin if things start to heat up between them.
    Thanks for the info!

    Haha I really need to cut that, is it safe to use SS scissors in the tank?

    And I had the cleaner shrimp until the emerald turned it into dinner :( that emerald is a trouble maker.... It also killed one of my hermits

    Don't see why not if you're just going in for a quick snip. Just make sure there's no strange residue or chemicals on it...

    Uh, that's one mean emerald. Did you see it kill the shrimp? I mean, I wouldn't pass anything on a crab but was the shrimp molting? Or did the shrimp die and he just went in for dinner?
    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.

    Alright alright Ill take a stab at cutting it off

    Well it was just sitting on the rock molting, next thing i see is the emerald dragging it by the shrimps antenna followed by a $20 meal This crab seems like a rebel, it's always trying to make it to the top of the tank. Once I turn off the lights I can hear it banging against the glass trying to climb up the heater/skimmer to make an escape.

    Emerald crabs turn predatory when there isnt enough algae around for them to eat. In an aquarium with enough algae they are friendly and reefsafe.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.
