remove the clown fish, add more rocks and hiding places, get a larger tank.

I have honestly never found any fish that is a vegetarian, they will all accept some kind of flesh.

whether it is livefood, or something that already died.

Pacus are often described as vegetarian, but they do eat meat/fish.

I think the correct term is "Omnivore" or "Omniverous" but not vegetarian.

and many sharks are highly carniverous!!!!!

also I gave you some pretty good advice, despite this being a saltwater topic so don't be tellin' me my answers are not serious

i think she meant the sharks are vegetarians from the movie "finding nemo".and i think that was meant for p45..chill innes..


..the reason why it's chasing the chromis is because your tank is too small ..not enough room to swim and hide..and the clown is trying to show dominence in the tank...is there war wounds on the chromis..scratchs and nips?i say rearrange your tank..might less up the chasing ...

if it is wounded and you have had it for 3-5 days do you really think it will be OK?


IMHO - you need to do something!!!!

Put a molly in there for an hour. He will kick the sh*t out of your biggest clownfish. Then take him out. Your clown will have learned his lesson. Then feed the Still salt water aclimatized molly to your Piranhas! I did. Little monkeys were a little screwed up.........

Oh and its not a good idea to mix clowns unless You have a big tank. You should stick to one species of clown. even in my 38g tank if I did what you did they would fight like bastards. But its your call, but watch out........
