    Really like your tank. :D

    Two maroons, they must get along great to co-exist in there together. Nice pair of clowns. I love Maroons, just not their attitude. I'd be afraid to stick my hand in there to do any maint. Mine loves to try to bit me. LOL.

    Looking real good. :Cheers:

    I bought them as a pair. They bicker between themselves a bit. It's funny to watch. The male can definitely hold his own! A few weeks after I put them in there they started to charge my hand and bite me. Freaked me out!! LOL! They have since stopped doing that. Maybe it's because I started chasing them back with one of my fingers or maybe they decided I am cool since I come around every time the food drops down from the above. :D

    Thanks!! :Cheers:

    Your tank looks great. :D

    Glad to hear your clowns have stopped attacking you. Wish I could say the same. My Maroon in the 60 gallon is such a p-head I have to chase him away with a net if I want to put my hand in the tank to do any work. I tried chasing him away with my hand and it just makes him madder. And it's impossible for me to put any coral on his half of the tank as he will just keep pushing on it till he knocks it over and I have to move it to the other side.
