How many clowns in one tank

So, what’s the real answer? It depends on your level of experience, age of the system, type of filter system, water parameters, your husbandry habits and more.

tub is a total of 20 clowns, one yellow tang, 4 large Banggai Cardinals, two Neon Damsels, 8 Flame Scallops, numerous snails, and blue leg hermits, and an assortment of soft and hard corals. The system consists of a 70 gal sump, pump, and four koralia circulating pumps. Lots of flow, all fish fed three times a day, etc, etc, etc.



While this system is a bit larger than yours, it just shows what can be done. What is your level of experience?

So why ask if 80% of us are always wrong? Your post seems to indicate you are the sole voice of reason. Everyone on this thread has said the same thing. Under optimum circumstances it can be done.
What's your level of experience?

Sorry so long to repost but thanks for the info. I've had saltwater tanks for the last 20 years or so, and in that time almost all levels of fish only to sps reefs but still consider myself an educated beginner due to all the changes and new info that comes out at a constant rate.

20 years doesn't make you a beginner! I agree however that a good discussion thread can usually answer a good question.

I've always known that clowns were better off in lowers numbers but now with all the captive breeding and what clowns were seeing in pet shops are tenth( or however many) generation captive bred. I was just wondering if any one has seen a change. Like the picture above I have been seeing a lot of pics of large schools of clowns lately

My tank raised occ clowns are two of the most aggressive fish ive ever owned. Temperament hasn't changed, but methods of keeping them have.

And I know I'm not a beginner but it feels that way from time to time. Every time I stare into my tanks I'm in awe, and I can't see it ever getting old I guess that says extremely a lot about our hobby/ passion/lifestyle.
