    Margaritas aren't really a warmer water species, it could be something he's doing before he dies.

    My marroon clowns hate snails. If they see any they attack it until they are sure its dead. When they killed a group of margaritas, they did have "smoke" around them. It must be their souls.

    Haha we'll hes ok. I just thought it was cool. Despite people saying margarittas don't live in warm water they do great in my 78-82 degree water. So far they lived for 4 months.

    I have had a margrita in a tank for over a year with tempo at 78 and he has been fine. They are very good for eating brown algae.
