I added a Starcki damsel and their behavior changed. Now they are more outgoing. Same happened with my Ventralis Anthias and Randalli Assessors - after I added an ocellaris pair to their QT they are far more out and less reclusive.

That's good; it's nice to have outgoing clowns.
I have one Percula who is temporarily the only fish in the tank. She isn't shy especially during feeding time (video 1) but spends most of her time in the Magnifica (video 2)

They had 2 Indo onyx percula at AC last weekend. Unfortunately very sick with Brooklynella or with serious ammonia burns (likely both).

I was tempted to go to AC last Saturday when I was in the Bay Area but didnít get a chance to.

A new onyx percula pair from Indonesia I found at a local store today. (The Australian Amphiprion bicolor at the end is from another store and most likely wild-caught. It came in with a few A. milii and a whole bunch of GBR percula):



The onyx percula came via Bali and were likely collected at West Papua (Irian Jaya) or the Gulf of Tomini, Sulawesi. In any case, they should belong the cryptic and more basal Tomini Bay/Biak "percula" species which is genetically distinct from the true PNG and Solomon Islands percula.
The store had just gotten a whole shipment of them in:

Pair 2 in their gigantea (the latest of my purple ones)



The anemone had little effect on the male, but the female got a lot brighter and lost some of her black. Judging by the color she had when I got her it might be possible that she grew up in a magnifica in the wild. I may give it a shot and rehome these guys to to magnifica (just got a new one) to see how it affects them...

My pair 4 has adopted 2 RBTAs as hosts. At first, it didn't seem to affect them, but today I noticed that the black of the female has started to fade into a dirty gray. I guess I will have to relocate them quickly and pair them with one of my giganteas. At least that way I will have a suitable tank with the correct hosts ready for the Whitemargin latifaciatus I'm getting from Jordan...

Gave pair 3 my small African magnifica (from Diver's Den) and their black started fading away. The female is especially affected. This was actually the case with all my percula that took hosts other that giganteas - the females lost black while the males were little to not affected.
The magnifica is quite healthy with a good sting. It also seems to have grown a bit.
