Nem's

Well I came home yesterday(gone 3hrs) to find me tang completely missing(no where around/under rockwork.) Pretty sure my clown fed him to my anemone(she's been trying to pull a sixline into,) a sad day..

I think I had a chromis recently meet this same fate.. whenever I feed the nems they try to steal whatever it is I'm feeding them. A few nights ago after feeding the tank one of them was missing, the anemone was retracted behind its rock, and the squid bits I'd just fed it were floating free in the water (being fought over by the remaining chromises (chromi?) even though they were way too big for their mouths)

Never thought of clowns as trying to pull other live fish into their host nems, though.. makes me rethink the idea of getting clowns.

Long tentacle mark, you still haven't given me a callahan clone

Well once mine decides to split, I'll let you know!

You sure your clowns dragged a fish into it? I've never heard of a clown doing that. Perhaps the tang was darting around and dove into it on accident.

either way, LTA's aren't sticky like carpets so if it was strong, it probably could have gotten away.

Idk, she's snatched the tail of that little sixline in there and backed into it, I don't care as much for the sixline, granted, this isn't your average clown, she's probably 5" or so

Wow! That's impressive!! What type of clown?

k, well I wouldn't be surprised if a gold striped maroon would do that. White...not completely surprised but that's still pretty aggressive.

Guess you got a mean one. Mine eats out of my hand and pretty much lets me pet her. But she'll chase off anyone who gets close to the nem

we had a maroon in one of the lfs that i used to work for's show tanks who would chase chromis into a carpet nem ( ended up feeding the carpet all 12 of them)

I had this happen before as well same clown but with a carpet nem. She pulled in a clown goby and a mandarin into it. She picked at anything that got close to the nem and she hated my hand.
