really? because i read that since they are both ocellaris clowns it would be best to introduce them at the same time and they almost always pair up. i know mixing different species, you can't do unless you have a very large tank. those are both color variations of the same species. from what i've read if you get one slightly smaller than the other, and introduce them at the same time it almost always works out

I like your rock work, BUT you might wanna make sure that water can flow through the structure. If not you will get stuff stuck in there and it will rot and can cause parameter flucuations.

I have an engineer goby btw, and I know you didnt mean eel but he is an awesome fish. Mine started about an inch long and is now well over a foot. He pokes his head out and digs and is oh so cool. lol His name is teddy bear, cause he has such a sweet adorable teddy bear face. ! LOL

I think mixing clowns would depend on which clowns you have in mind. i wouldnt mix a percula with an oscellaris or a gold banded with a skunk clown. Just depends on the combination.

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

yeah i really like engineer gobies too, but 20 is much too small. I'm considering getting one when i set up my 75 would it be compatible with a yellow eye kole tang? the clowns i want to mix, are both ocellaris. the main reason i want them, is because eventually i hope to try breeding saltwater and ocellaris are said to be the easiest fish to breed. the two i want are snowflake ocellaris and black ocellaris and when they breed you get black ice clownfish

Ya I've had a true percula and the false killed him in about a month of being together? May have been bad luck but I now hes was a male??
