Mysis shrimp. Brine is mostly water. You can get any 2 same clown in the same species. Just add them at the same time.

It is best two get two clowns of the same species that are different in size. One much smaller then the other. the large one will be the female and the smaller one will be the male. If they are the same size they will fight for dominants and one may be killed in the process. Remember that clowns are Damsels and can get pretty nasty.

I`d be kind of afraid of putting 2 clowns in a 23 unless they were mated pair. If you do make sure there is a size difference.

Hopefully that will do it. You can always ask the LFS if he can get a mated pair.
