for a while, alot of folks have been able to keep them in nanos for a while, as clowns don't usually swim around like say a tang does, but on the other hand they can also get to around 4 inches so a full sized clownfish may produce enough waste to start over coming the water volume which may end up damaging the ecosystem and the fishes resperatory system.

my buddy resently put two Black ocellaris clowns in his 12g nanocube, so it can be done and its all up to the hobbiest if they are willign to take the time to maintain a nano with clowns in it
