The ones from Australia tend to have better conformation than the ORA or TropicMarin fish. The best ones I have seen actually come from a breeder here in SoCal who is also on RC named Morgman. I...

When you say the LFS had normal colored sebae clowns, I am thinking that what you are talking about clarki clowns. Many LFSs still use the common name sebae clown when they are actually selling A....

That is enough light. I would have it on 10 hours with actinics on 1 hour before and after.

They like a lot of indirect current and/or a wavebox type action as well.

I really like A. fuscocaudatus (sp?), but to tell you the truth, it would be very hard for any clowns to be prettier than my first pair of ocellaris.

It would take many years for a BTA to take over your tank. It is not that hard to get them off the rocks and sell them if they split.
FWIW: Large BTAs (>6") are less likely to split than small ones.

Like Gary said, if you like the sebaes because they are a bright white with purple tips, then you like the ones that are usually on their way out. Sebae anemones should be tan with tentacles over an...
