Monster Clowns

Steve & I acquired 2 new Clowns during the week to add to our collection. These were at another store and had been bought back by someone who's tank they had outgrown. We had heard they were big, but big is an understatement! The largest one of the two measures about 11.5" from head to the tip of the tail, and is easily over 4.5" tall. The actual width is impressive too. It is just enormous! I have got a couple of overhead pics of these 2 in the box before we introduced them into our tank, along with a standard 30cm (12") ruler for comparison:

They appear to have settled in well, although are a little bit shy at the moment. It has been interesting to watch the behaviour of the (now considerably smaller) existing Alpha, and who is very fiesty - so far, she has still been keeping all the others in check as usual, but hasn't dared to be nasty to the XL Loach as yet!
I'll try for some normal side-on photos in due course.
