    So Art, do you regret getting all those different clowns now?

    Regret? Not really. It was awesome to have them. Before the magnifica it was great. After the magnifica the little ones started battling it out since the bonded pair weren't doing much. I suspect they would've figured out a dominant one out of the bunch and mellowed out. I think I regret starting to remove the most aggressive one. To be honest, the first most aggressive one wasn't even that aggressive. Now dwindling down to fewer and fewer they are getting more and more aggressive towards one another. If I were to do it again, I'd get a lot more clowns to start, and let them battle it out a bit before starting to break them up.

    Yeah I didn't want to say anything but I didn't have high hopes of all those clown co-existing. Maybe if the anemone was super large like entire tank large there'd be enough room, however you kind of just SF apartmented them by putting 8 guys in a 2 bedroom 1 bath place :D

    I went in knowing it wouldn't necessarily turn out well. My hopes weren't that high, I tried not to let my girlfriend name any of them (too late), but glad I've been able to keep a close eye on them and learn a lot while not really hurting anything in the meantime. Though it wasn't a success, I learned quite a bit about the group. I think I might try another approach, but my biggest worry is that there aren't enough reefers in the area for new clownfish =) Think a LFS like AC would take them?
