Since I found this forum 3 1/2 weeks ago I have learned so much and I am very grateful for all your help, but greatly discouraged after I just found one of my two new Clowns dead.

I have done everything I've been told and my parameters are perfect. I won't bother to post them.

There was one dead Clown in the tank at the LFS when I picked out mine, so maybe mine died from the same thing. I'll wait till next week and see how the other one does before replacing the dead one.

I was smart enough not to get attached too quickly (with my history of killing fish), but it's still very upsetting as I have put so much into trying to do things right for once. I can't imagine how Gareth feels with all his recent losses.

So many posts have suggested that I get a bigger tank. I just won't do that until I can learn to keep one at all.

Bah humbug.
