The clown is about 4 inches long. This was the first time the clown actually ripped a claw off! I am just glad I was able to catch it on camera! However, usually he is aggressive and will nip and harrass a new dinner guest....

i love this tank, great video too.

actually i like your tank so much that it inspired me to create a tank just like it lol. My tank will have a peacock and a cinnamon clown too!
But i did opt for more coral.

The clown is by himself now while i wait for my peacock order to come in.......

im trying not to get attached.

wanna start a pool? Think he'll eat him?

I have had success keeping two large clowns with two peacocks (on different occasions) The clown had to be large and aggressive/bold. However, when first introduced, i noticed both times the clown was probably scared and stressed. On top of a new environment, there was a huge predator downstairs. However, I would feed him very well with spectrum and mysis and they both pulled through and lost the stressed signatures within a week or so. I tried putting an anemone in there to assist the clown and help him feel more comfortable, but a peacock tank is hard to keep the nitrates low due to them burying their molts and the live food occasionally offered.... In the future I want to add a large refugium/sump to battle the nitrates. I recently added a 50ft coil denitrator about two months ago, so hopefully the nitrates will start to drop soon...
