View Full Version : My Nigripes and their Mag

I have had these around 3 months they were not a pair at first and fought a good deal. They are wild fish and have been skittish but are now bonded and settled. The mag has been very strong the whole time, purple and green.

Awesome clowns, but notoriously bad shippers and most seem to have brook when they come in. 3 months in your tank already... I'm pretty sure you're in the clear. Great looking clowns. Good luck with them and hey maybe they will even spawn for you, captive bred nigripes would sell for sure.

Pretty cool. Love the clowns

Thanks all, yes they are sensitive. They are prone to bacterial infections especially the fins. I think if the tank parameters began to decline or nutrition was not diverse they could easily decline in health.
I have less concerns about the anemone than the clowns actually. The balling behaviour only started in the past week. It seems linked to me feeding copepods to the tank?

These green and purple mags on the forum are killing me.
