Is this a good deal? #1
2 x Percula Clownfish

1 x Clown Anemone

£39.99

I know they arent guaranteed to use the anemone but wanted one anyway - i suppose i should really find out how big the anemone is :)

Re: Is this a good deal? #2
no idea i'm afraid - think chris would be the best person to reply

where are you getting them from? can you make sure they are ok before you buy?

Re: Is this a good deal? #3
probably is a good deal, but its only good if you can successfully keep the anemone, do you know what species of anemone it is? and yeah i'd check how big it is, need lots of room for an anemone.

Re: Is this a good deal? #7
depends, erdington aquatics sell percs for £12 each

so depending on the size etc of the anemone it would be a good deal

but the percs would be just as likely to use a leather toad stool, or so i've been told
There are no experts, mearly beginners who know more than others.

Support your LFS, online sites won't stay open 5 mins extra for you

Re: Is this a good deal? #8
yeah i know what you mean
its cool - my LFS has said he will get me a pair of clowns and a smallish bubble tip for £30 - he will also pack them into a smallish tank so the clowns learn to use the anenome - he has had good success so far doing it this way :)

Re: Is this a good deal? #9
i found that they rarly will colonise it with other fish in the tank that are aggressive as they prefer to stay in the rock

our clowns love the bubbletip anenome. they can live without them though. Bubbletips seem to be the easiest to keep.
