I recently got 5 true percula Clownfish. I had 2 tank bred ones. The angel never messed with them. Now I took out the tank bred ones and just kept the true percs. The flame angel has killed 3 by making them jump out of the tank. I've witnessed it chasing them and forcing them to jump out. I was fortunate enough to be in the room to watch one jump out. I luckily saved it. I put the tops on my tank now. So I find a dead clown in my tank. I know who the culprit is. So I took the remaining 2 and put them in my fuge. What is this fishes problem?

Tank Size?

How big is your tank? I remember when I first started the hobby I had a flame in a 30 gallon and it was a terror. They are aggressive fish by nature, and will defend their territory chasing or even killing other fish. Last year I added an Albi-Angel in with my Flame and he killed him over night... That was in a 90 Gallon reef tank.

Every fish has his own personality, every species has there own nature.

It's in a 90 gallon. Just weird that the clowns are almost the same but the fish attacks them. They were no where near the flame. Maybe the Clownfish were giving him dirty looks. I guess if the new guy was giving me dirty looks I'd be pissed too

Aggression

As Mark Callahan says know your tank personality the same goes for fish. The one think I have found buying "Used Fish" off reefers is, most of the fish people get rid if on here are terrors of the tank! Which works out in my favor because I have aggressive fish. The only clowns I have found to be aggressive is Clark and Maroon and that's only if they are mated pairs.. The rest just get mowed over...

I've had this flame angel since it was very small from my lfs about a year and a half ago, maybe longer. The clowns were just added. They're real small right now. (Don't even have stripes yet) They weren't aggressive trade offs lol.:wacko:

The clowns are around an inch so they should be able to hold their own... LMK if you need a couple more, ill hook ya up. Sorry for the bad luck!
