56 gallon reef process

Got my first two fish in my tank. Chose clowns. I just like clowns and plan on getting an enemenie. Did I spell that right? Any tips you guys can give me on keeping these clowns at a great health would be well appreciated.

Thanks

I've got a Maroon. When I first put him in my tank he dug a burrow. Soon after I put in a hammer and he actually filled in the burrow. I think he's stoked to have a coral to swim in. He's been getting closer and closer to it. I feed him dried Mysis Shrimp every day and frozen Spirulina once a week with his regular feeding. I want the tank to get nutrients so the corals can pick it up as well, plus the cuc has got to eat something. I think just keeping your water right and consistent is the key. Watch them for abnormal behaviors and check their color, specifically for spots. I check out my clown every day and he seems content with his reef. 10g Nano, he is The King of his reef but the clown of mine...

It's spelled anemone. You should wait a good while before introducing one of them. Most say 8 months to a year. They need a stable tank and intense lighting and odds are your clowns may never host it anyway. Are they tank bred? Very cute little fish, my first were 2 black and white perculas

No I made sure they were not tank bred.
