So how many clowns did I get????

That is a good question. At my lfs, the clowns I wanted were being treated for ich again (their 3rd time) so the owner and I had a looksee around the store. We found one tank with clowns it. The only problem was, they had all crammed themselves into a piece of bogwood that had holes in it so I couldn't see them. they were the only ones diease free and were being sold for 12$ each. The owner tried to get them out of the wood, he tried shaking it, turning the light off, no go. I said, well, you COULD always GIVE me the wood. Finally, he stuck the piece of wood in a bag. He said," I honestly don't know how many are in there, could be 2, could be 5." So far, I have seen 3, and a Pl*co that hitched a ride. Any above 3, I am taking back with the pl*co (I only paid for 3, and he would have given me more if there weren't 3 in there, and I am honest), but this is great fun. I should get a pool going on this one :). At least I got snap, crackle and pop, named for Cybermeez's brood, and a free piece of wood. Now I just have to drill the holes larger to accomodate then as they grow. I am amazed they could get in there in the first place. I'll let you all know the final tally.
