    Hi! :) I'm just wondering if it's alright to introduce very small clownfishes to a tank full of kinda big clown fishes? I'm getting worried whether they will get their fair share of food. Thanks! ::)

    You can really only have one pair of clowns per tank...

    you can have multiple but it depends on tank size, and you'd want to introduce them all at once.. Although cute they are mean little bastards.

    I would advise against it. Just my opinion.

    you never want to add a bigger clown then what is in your tank because if one you already have in your tank has done the change to female the one you put in will kill her to become the female

    His interest is not the well being of his tank inhabitants he is only financially invested in the hobby.

    Oh you know. Dosing without testing. Monthly water changes. Adding livestock without concern for their wellbeing.

    You need an incredibly large (hundreds of gallons) to make more than a pair of clowns work long term. You are best off limiting yourself to a single species of clown per tank
