    Just saying hi. Recently I replaced my 29 gallon tank with a 120 gallon tank and took on the never ending responsibility of taking care of it. I never realized how much work it was. I guess i was never a very good fish hobbyist before.
    Right now I have two tomato clowns but my friend wants to give me two semi picasso clowns. I don't want to say no, but I am unsure on if all four clowns could live peacefully together in my 120 gallon. What does everyone think?

    I dont think so also. I had two different clowns in a 6 ft tank and they have fought for yrs. Not to the death but nipping and harassing each other. I would not even think of 4. One good thing about going to a big tank like a 12o gallon tank is the added water volume. It will more forgiving of mistakes and oversights. Good luck on the tank and welcome aboard.

    I Dont think so but i have 3 clowns in a 210 and the live harmonously. I have 2 orange skunks and 1 maroon. But If it was me I would move the 2 tamatoes and go with the more rare picaso clowns. Just my opinion:twocents:

    Well thanks for the advice everyone!

    I listened to ya'll and got rid of the tomato clowns to make room for the picassos. I was so proud of myself for even catching them becasue they are quick little buggers! Thanks again! Im so glad I found a forum with such great members!
