Am I an optimist?......i think so

Ok....so here is what i have done...I just bought 2 Maroon Clowns from the store where I work. They weren't in the same tank.

My thought was that maybe if i introduce them to my tank at the same time, that maybe...maybe...i would have a chance at a Maroon pair.

I really want a Maroon pair. They are going in my Nano now to be moved into my 75g reef tank in about a month.

I think too positively.

Update...so they are in the tank together now.

One of them was picking on the other for a bit...but the one that was picking on the other one is kinda floating near the filter intake...i've seen this happen before as activity of a newly introduced clown so i'm not too worried.....yet.

I am nervous they wont get along though. I'll keep everyone posted haha.

Hopefully, one is really larger than the other. The one getting picked on... the same size as the other?

It's a crap shoot. If you have two of the same sex, it could get nasty. Keep an eye on'm. If I were you, I'd take'm both back and get a credit on a mated pair instead. Then again, you may get lucky.
