chromis and new clowns

Ok.. So my urchin seems to be doing better ( that was my last post ) so I have a new question. Here in Orlando, the best known salt water store is World wide corals. I happen to be lucky enough to live 5 minutes from them. This weekend, they are having a big 7th anniversary sale. They have clowns advertised for 8.99. Great price..I would love to get a pair of them. My question is...my only fish now is a chromis which has been in the tank by himself for about 3 months. Would I anticipate any problems getting a pair of clowns since they are both in the damsel family and he has been the king of the tank for a while...

Yeah chromis can be little devils, if it's already killed 3 fish IMHO you'd be best re-homing it. If it's that aggressive it will most likely attack anything else you add to the tank too.

Yep. I have read that the strongest one will sometimes kill the weaker and smaller ones...

Chromis are a schooling fish.. Did you see it actually kill the other 3? I've never seen any type of aggression from chromis.

The only aggression that I ever saw was when I first got them. He would always chase the smaller one into the rocks where the small would hide. Ever time he would come out, the larger one would chase him back in...So I just assumed that he got the best of them after a while.

Any respectable clownfish will be able to hold it's own against a chromis. Just my opinion though

Well, I think you might be right but, what I'm thinking is for 8.99 they might be pretty small and my chromis is about 2" long
