Plates are fairly easy to maintain even with the light you have. They actually prefer less intensity than most realize. Maintain NSW
chemistry, keep it on the sandbed and no strong or sustained flow near it. Otherwise they are self sufficient.
I'll cut the percs to 2...or I could go to 4 or 5?
I think I rather like the idea of a school of them. Advice?
Tanks too small for long term success. Once a mated pair is established they will fight with the others until dead. If the tank was a 150+, you might be safe but not with a 75 gal
As to the female Q above, the larger is always
the female. They are born "sexless" and eventually change when the need arises depnding on hierarchy. If it's only one clown in a tank, it will eventually become female even without a mate once mature.
