It really depends on the size of the tank , and the level of aggresiveness of the clowns.

I'd say the odds are definately not in favor of them getting along.

I have a single, small, Ocellaris Clownfish and he stays in the back corner. He is healthy and eats, but due to seeing his reflection, will not come out of the corner. It's like that fish in Nemo who introduced her crazy sister, a reflection, LOL.

Will my clownfish outgrow this behavior and come out to investigate the other areas of the tank or is he doomed to cowering in the corner?

Depends on how long you've had it but clowns will typically stick to one area of the tank as a rule. Some wander the tank, some don't but it is more common for them to feel secure in one particular area. If it's still fairly new to the surroundings, it will take a bit of time before it becomes adventurous.

Cheers
Steve

Thanks steve-s. I just got him three days ago. I thought it was because he was lonely and saw his reflection in that spot. Good to know.

Best,
RodneyCK

Best thing for any clown is a mate. They thrive on having company and it is generally thought that they will live much longer lives than in a solitary existance. Just be sure if you do that it is much smaller than the original clown, the exact same species and properly quarantined before you place them together...

Cheers
