Adding another clown...

Is there any chance I could add a black clown to my 15G tank with a normal orange/red ( percula ) clown that has been in the tank since day one? I am guessing no but I am not sure if the color difference would maybe pursue a yes to answer this question.

If you have a true percula, you best bet would be to add another true percula. Color won't really matter. They will most likely fight a bit and first, but there is the chance they will pair up. But if you add a different species than you have now, chances they will fight until the new one is dead or cowering in a corner. Not good to mix clown species in that small of a tank.

If you do happen to add a clown i reccomend that if you have a large one no to add a small one or if the one you have now is rather small I would look for one about twice the size of the one you have. In my opinion that will help them in your quest to get them to pair up.
