View Full Version : Trying to figure out who did it?

So I just found one of my firefish missing his big fin on top. I'm trying to find out who bit it off. Let me know who you think? I have the following:

Cleaner Wrasse
Arceye Hawk
Orange Clown
Scotter Bleeny
PJ Cardinal

Who swims at the same level? Who is the most territorial? Does anyone pick on other fish? I have an azure damsel that is kind of the bully of my tank so I know if anything happens it was probably him.

Hard to say but I'd go with the /clown.

That's interesting. Knowing the temperament of my clowns they would be the last ones I would suspect.

That is the funny thing. Usually the 2 firefish just hang out together towards the bottom of the right site of the tank. My suspicion was the clown but I didn't want to accuse. I will take a picture it is kinda funny to see one firefish with a long fin and his buddy with a nub. This shouldn't kill him though correct?

My clown attacks the turkey baster every time I put it in the tank and not because of the food. They can be very territorial.

He will be ok right? Will the fin grow back?

Not sure if the full fin will grow back.. part should a lil. But as long as he doesnt end up with a bacterial infection or something strange as a result (I have had fish have fins go MIA and not had that happen so dont be overly worried lol), he will be just fine! Look at the bright side, You can tell the two apart now tho! lol ;)

I had a clown that would grab new fish by the tail and swim with them untill they drowned clowns are evil lil buggers

That's so weird. My clowns are so docile that other smaller fish used to pick on em.
