Sounds like he needs to be put in his place by a bigger fish!!! As he is only 4" he could get a telling off by someone three times his size if he was rehomed.

I can only speak from personal experience but I have never had a problem when adding new clowns to my school. Like yourself I can't resist the ones with unusual markings, I have them ranging from 2" to 10" all living together and the only fights that break out are between the main group that have be...

It is partially buried in the sand (probably 1" of sand covering the bottom of it) which maybe helps it fe...

Previously I had my Clowns, Modesta & YoYos in one tank and my Sids, Kubs & Striata in another, for the...

Couldn't resist

I visited a shop in Farnham for the first time today and found an 8" clown for sale for under £30 so I just had to buy her, she is very chunky & healthy looking: -
