    I went to the hobby shop yesterday and found one of the most beautiful maroon clownfish I have seen in person - so I had to buy it. It is doing very well, and I cant wait to get more fish!

    Pretty fish but not a good choice for your first fish. That type of clown is really aggressive and will probably be a turd when introducing another fish. Good luck!

    They also get really big (for clowns). How big is your tank?

    salt for brains is right. It may be very difficult to add any fish after the Maroon. I have a pair that I transferred to my 60 gallon after getting it fully stocked with the other fish I wanted. Even being the newest addition, they still ended up slowly bullying two wrasse to death. I love my Maroons but I will probably go for some designer Perculas next time.
