    two quick questions

    A bad idea

    Don't ever mix clowns. Wow what a bad idea. I had the tomato in a 12 gallon. Then I got a 60 gallon and got a maroon. Then I decided to sell the 12 and put everything into the 60 including the tomato. The tomato was bigger then the maroon at the time and they fought a little in the begining...

    Candy Cane

    I'm new to Candy canes. Are the strings coming out of these polyps how they eat? If not what are they for. They were all out like crazy last night and I thought maybe it was croaking on me and then this morning all is back to normal. I figured they were just feeding but not sure.

    My new Crocea

    Anyone know what this worm thingy on the side of this clam is? I bought it from Jesse and didn't notice this thing until I got it home. It appears to be bothering the clam so I'm not sure if I should try to remove it or if it's the clams friend or what. Advice would be appreciated.

    My poor new Watanabe Angel

    There is a small whitishy yellow thing one the side of my new Angelfish. I tried to look up what it could be and I've narrowed it down to a Fungis which they described as looking like a little cotton ball, a Cancerous growth which they said looks like cauliflower or a wound from getting into it...
