27 clowns in the same tank 27 months

Well, my babies are growing up. They are hard to count but I don't think I've lost any. I have seen one that looked a little less vibrant than the others but upping the feeding seemed resolve the issue.

current shot:

Most of the Percs are small for their age. A few are 2 and a half inches but some are still only an inch big. You can see the guy who had issues in the following picture. He wasn't one of the smallest fishes so it must have been a dominance thing.

That is cool to see that many clowns in one tank, how much longer will you keep them in that tank.

no plans on ever changing the tank. I have it on VERY wet skim direct to house sewage and top off with salt water. Nitrates are at around 5.

earlier shots for those who missed them:

I wouldn't want to mess around in that tank, my 2 clowns are enough for me, trying to bite when you get too close to their overflow box.

all Rose and Green tipped bta's under under three 400 watt 20K XM single ended metal halide with two 160 watt VHO super actinics.

Probably 20 to 25 anemones.

That's one of the most beautiful tanks I've ever seen!
Killer pics.
It's so nice/refreshing to see a tank chock full of nems as opposed to the typical sps tanks(not that those aren't cool too)

Congrats, Mona.

Your tank and clowns look great.

Are RBTAs and GBTAs clones from two single parents or did you add more after initial setup?

Attention: Folks who are new to this hobby. Do not try this at home. Mona is very experienced and raised those babies herself.

Are they with the parents? Do you have several females in the mix? Incredible.
