well you know Ashley,
A thread isn't any good unless there are pictures to support it.

I notice that you left a few things blank in your post (possibly to go back and edit it later) RC doesn't do it that way. You only have a window of like 30 minutes to edit post and after that they are set in stone.

Looking forward to seeing pictures of your set-up. and I will subscribe to this thread so I can watch the progress. Good luck

Oh! Why thank you! =) I was wondering why I couldn't edit it =) that makes sense now! Well a small update on my 29 gallon tank. When I joined RC I had only persephone in the 29 and cerbie in the 15. However I did have another clownfish, Bryn, in a small green tub, probably no more than 3 gallons, in a temporary quarantine after the disappearance of his "mate" Chester (although I suspect that chester, my favorite and first clownfish, fell victim to my 6 month old kitten isabella. Poor chester, I will miss her).

Originally, Bryn and Chester were living happily in a 10 gallon tank on their own. After chester's disappearance, I wanted to quarantine Bryn to make sure it wasn't disease or tank conditions. After about two weeks in the QT, bryn was no longer visibly mourning the loss of chester and I decided it was time to show him his new house, the 29 gallon, home to persephone. As soon as Bryn swam out of my hand into the tank and saw persephone, a female clown twice his size, he shimmied and shook his little tail off, something I never saw him do for chester, a maroon clown. That was last Wednesday. I now walk by the tank to see Bryn following Persephone around like a puppy dog. I'm happy to report no signs of fighting or stress!

I will take some pictures of the two tanks once I get them cleaned up and, in the case of the 29 gallon, rearrange the rockwork! =)
