    Default newest addition

    Its been exactly 11 months now and I bought nemo a new buddy. As soon as I opened the door the new clown darted at the front of the glass. Now that Nemo has a new buddy they are way more active. Sorry about the poor video quality, my camera takes good orchid photos but poor videos. I tried taking photos but he is just too hyper.



    He was sold as a 'black percula' but after some reseach at home I think it is rather a A. ocellaris. (my need to name things correctly) Percula do not exist in full black but its darkest morphs still have red fins. As well my new black ocellaris clown is way more curious than my older percula(Nemo), since this is the character of ocellaris clowns. My percula rather stays inside of its host more often. Black ocellaris clowns are not often seen at the shops here. Its a colour morph naturally found in Northern Australia only. Its regular morph is orange similiar to Nemo. Both of my fish are captive raised increasing lifespan and conserving wild populations. So now I have both species and I wonder if they will hybridize when they are more mature.

    They are great! I hope they do breed. That will be really cool, Fren! Thanks for sharing the video.

    Cheers,

    Fantastic set up I have always wanted a salt water tank but the fish and creatures are so expensive it has put me off I also was told its hard to keep the balances right in a small set up but you are doing wonderfully with it, They really are gorgeous. Maybe when I have a big house and more money I can have a go but for now I will have to stick to my fancy goldfish! they are cute though.

    I have kept tropical freshwater for most of my life and still do... but I do admire people like you who have the gumtion and the time (and dedication) to tackle saltwater... and succeed! The sparkle and brilliance of a good saltwater setup always brings the thrill of the ocean. The sea is like an alien world on our doorstep... weird yet strangely familiar. Thank you for cheering me up so much!
