Hey all! I know I haven't been on in a while but I have been very busy. I have moved my tank to a cooler spot and away from the window to get rid of algae and to stop fish from dying. My last clown bit the dust, I don't really know what happened to him, the temp was only 84* F and he was sitting in his cave like normal but he was dead as a doornail. I had to have something loachy and the LFS happed to have some new modestas in so I got 3 of them. I have had a time with these little buggers. As far as aggression, I have seen only playing around in there little group but they don't like to stay in the tank!! I wake up this morning only to find the biggest one on the floor dry as a bone. I don't know how but he was still alive and he is swimming hapilly now with the rest. Later on in the day, I come back to find the medium sized one missing. I immedietly check the floor and he is not there. Then I look in the powerfilter and there he was! I was in my room later and I head some splashing but the same one was swimming near the outflow of the powerfilter. I watched him for a second and to my amazement, he flopped right back over in the filter AGAIN! I dumped him out after being stabbed by sub-occulars when I reached over in the filter to get him. These things are cool though and they have calmed down a bit now, I guess they will just have to get used to their new home!!
