    Hey everyone! glad to be back posting! Finally kicking cancer's but! But I have a problem. I bought a big colony of Duncans and my clowns that I have had for years saw me feeding it mysis and now they are tearing it apart thinking it's mysis shrimp in it all the time to the point the duncan won't even bother opening up anymore. They didn't do this before until I started feeding it mysis. Any advice cause it this rate the duncan will be dead soon.

    This is one of those times where your going to need to make a choice between the clowns or the corals. Most likely one will need to be removed from the tank.

    Of course this does give you a reason to set up a second tank.

    So I got a magnetic frag rack and moved the duncans to the other side of the tank and out of view. My clowns are scared of the dark so from now on I'll feed the corals at night and the clowns during the day way on the other side of the tank.

    I've never found that moveing something saved it from the fish after it, but if it works for you then your problem is solved. Go for it.
