    I've had my clownfish pair for 3 years. They're both still about the same size though. I'm guessing that means there hasn't been a transition yet. Ugh. I hope I don't end up with a bully clownfish.

    With mine itís the first day or two they are in the tank. I may try an acclimation box one day. After that she just defends her area.

    You've had them for 3 years? How big are they? I think they're more likely to form a pair if there are more in the harem and with an anemone present.
    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.

    It will be 3 years in November. I'd say they're about 2 inches or so. They didn't want to be still for a pic with the ruler, but my flame cardinal struck a pretty pose.

    Question Substrate and Snails


    0 Not allowed!
    When I moved everything from the 20g to the 40B, I literally moved everything, including all the sand, because I was worried about accidentally throwing out a snail or other live critter. If / when I upgrade to a larger tank, I want to change out the substrate, but I do not want to lose any of my critters.

    What have you done when changing substrate in order to make sure no critters get lost in the shuffle?

    And what is your preferred substrate for a SW tank?

    It will be very difficult to retain all of the life that is living in the current substrate if you are going to swap it out for something else. You may get a decent yield of critters by using something like a plastic colander to sieve out the larger stuff, but you're going to have to accept that you will not be able to transfer most of the smaller organisms.

    I recently just started adding Caribsea's Arag-Alive Fiji Pink (it's not pink, BTW) to my tank and I absolutely LOVE the grain size. Fine like beach sand but big enough not to blow around easily.

    I'm ok with not carrying over the smaller organisms, but I don't want to lose the snails that I've bought. It sounds like I'll be doing a some sand sifting when I break down the 40B. I figured that would be the case, but thought I'd ask in case somebody had some nifty trick to share.

    I'm happy to hear that about the Fiji pink sand, both that it's not really pink and that it's a nice grain size. I'm leaning toward that for the new substrate. I may mix several kinds together, since I'll likely need more than one bag. It's probably going to depend on selection when it comes down to purchase time.

    Yeah I think sifting is your best bet. Or strap a glove on and just dig through it and see what you find. Also look at the Bimini pink, it has an awesome mix of stuff in it. I even had some shells and a few pieces of coral skeleton in it. Itís not what I was planning on using but Iím glad I did. I love the different size grains and little pebbles and stuff.

    I like that. To me that looks more natural than what I have. I think what I have now is cheap pool filter sand. I've had it for so long that I can't remember. Thank you for the recommendation.

    What am I seeing here? The snails laid eggs on the glass and the bristleworms are eating the eggs?
