I started with 3 for a 75g 10 months ago to cycle my QT wile the rock was curing in the main. One died in QT and another died 4 months into the main after a velvet outbreak. Got another and he lived in QT for 3 weeks with two farm raised percs. He thought he was a clown for a while I think.

When the 3 got added to the main, it was soooo cute when the single chromis in the main realized there was another all of a sudden. He actually flew out from behind the rocks and swam around almost wagging his tail at the new, larger b/g chromis.

The new one still hangs out with the clowns from time to time, but swims with her little buddy all the time. So, I got a school of two working fine. Wanting to add a third but wondering whether it'd be OK. 5 would be too many for me with my current stock.

P.S. - didn't know about the more humane cycling methods back then, without fish.
Then, I found this site and learnt those kinda neat things.

Clowns also do the little "schooling" behavoir when kept in pairs, and they are VERY pretty...

...not that chromis aren't of course.
