I think the misunderstanding here is that would the maroon clown be "happy" under a certain size tank. Fishes can adapt to smaller tanks, but it isnt necessarily the best thing to do.

I agree with Henry the idea is to make your fish an inverts feel like their home in the wild

It isn't the right thing to do because it is painful for the fish. It stunts their growth. Their body won't grow but the organs inside them will.

their bodies will still grow, just at a slower pace.

i have two percula's they were less then an inch when i got then, now they are double the size and they are only 4 months old. live aquaria says they get to 3 inches which is 67% of their size

I just wouldn't do it. I have heard it is painful to the fish and personally, I wouldn't ever want to do that if I didn't have to.

How many inch of fish per gallon is allowable as a rule of thumb?

There isn't a clear rule of thumb since some are messy eaters, some are active swimmers, some are more aggressive.....

I had a pair of clowns in my 29g and they were nice and happy there.

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