    they are very nice looking fish , now my concern is they tend to stay away from each other about 5 feet (125 gal tank) they are about they same size, they have been in the corners of the tank since i put them in. i hope they pair off together because they look like a couple after a argument. i have only had them for 2 days.

    Give them some time. Moving to a new tank is stressful. They'll find each other.

    Clowns are pretty rough on anemones especially maroons. If the anemone isn't three or four times bigger than the clown keep a watchful eye for signs of stress with the anemone and be prepared to find it a new home if needed.

    thanks for the advise the anemone is half the size of the clown, will keep a eye on it.
