Saw something cool....can I do this.

Hey folks I was on FB and saw this tank. I noticed he has 9 clown fish and it appears to be maybe 1 tang of some sort. Could I do this in my 55 g? Like maybe 4 clowns and one of something else. Heck maybe even 5 clowns alone? I'm a big fan of clowns.Click image for larger version

Stay with 2 clowns, I think they will fight in 55 gals... I would not try it as clowns cost 25$ each.

I have seen multiple clowns done in larger tanks, with mixed results. I would not try it in a. 55, but that's just me.

As I said, you take risks by doing this, and thoses fishs are not good price given.

i think larger numbers (anything over 4) is doable in most cases. even with a group of 9, id doubt they would single ones out. should be ok

If you are going to do this I would try to add them all at once. Make sure your bb can handle it, and keep an eye on parameters after. If you get them all at once and put them all in you can be sure that there is only one female.
