How to breed clowns.

I have 2 ocillarus clowns one black and one red. They get along really well always swim together. The black is slightly larger than the red. They in a 30 gallon long with a couple balloon mollies, starry blenny, lettuce sea slug, various hermits, snails, and corals. How hard is it to breed them and how large should they be before they breed? Any advice would be appreciated.

Honestly even if they breed in that tank you will never get any fry to survive. There is a bunch of stuff online about breeding clowns in specially setup tanks and how to raise the fry. In a reef tank they may or may not once they reach about 3" (female).

Google "Breeding Clowns" It's quite an involved process. MOFIB is also a good resource: Marine Ornamental Fish & Invertebrate Breeders Associate
