i have 1 orenge and white ocellaris clown already living in the tank and want to know if i could get a black and white clown to live with him?? will they pair up,or even be nice to each other?? is this a bad idea? has enybody done this before?

i had 2 clowns,but the smaller one is missing as of today. i know i need to find out what happend to him and where he is before getting a new fish,just wanna know if this will work out when its time to get a new fish.

I've added a single clown to a tank with a single clown before. It worked out really well for me, the two paired up pretty quickly. In fact i will be adding another single clown again cause the one I added went carpet surfing a few weeks ago. :-(

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If they are both oscellaris they should be ok.

I believe percula's are more aggressive than regular ole oscellaris.

yep, thats what i would think too. It's when you start mixing different clowns like a clarkii or a percula that in my opinion could bring trouble.
