Anyone telling you it's OK to add another clown has to have a motive I'd question. Either that, or he's totally uninformed.

Well today I've learned lots. I talked to my LFS owner and he has multiple tanks that he has with multiple different clownfish in them and these are his personal tanks and he told me they all get along(and yes one of tees tanks is actually in his store) and then he told multiple stories of his buddies with their clownfish and other fish. Basically it comes down to experience with fish. So I got the naked clown got him home acclimated him and guess what everyone's happy and swimming with each other no one is fighting. So I appreciate yalls advice but I'm just telling you don't be afraid to put more than two clownfish in your tank. Ok so this tank is done with getting so now I'm gonna start adding corals I'm starting with mushrooms. And now I'm making plans to get a 75 gallon tank. So that's my update.

LOL, you are fine now. I had two pairs of clowns in my 125g for a few months and then the trouble began. Just take my advice and watch them. Some people do the multiple clowns and have no issues but the majority do have problems at some point.

We just wanted you to be aware is all. I wouldnt do it again and I;m talking from actual experience.

Good luck and those naked clowns are awesome!!!

I just ordered 2 new b&w clowns for my cube, they are coming tomorrow! So very excited!

The clown fish are most likely to chase other fish if they wonder into their territory, because your tank is quite small it is hard for the damsel not to, by mistake, invade the clown fishes territory.
