And how many of each species could you put with the clownfish in the 33g fish only aquarium with live rock.

There are a lot of fishies you can put with two clowns...here are two that i particularly like for small aquariums because of their colour

six-lined wrasse (good for eating bristle worms)
flame angel (only if you are not getting corals)

Considering Clowns aggressive nature it might be good to get a purple dotty back. They too are slightly aggressive. I would make sure that the dotty is eating frozen mysis before adding to your tank. Within the first few days you will know if the two will get along. If the clowns show a lot of aggression try rearranging your rocks.

If I were to buy 2 ocellaris clowns, a six-lined wrasse, a flame angel and a purple dotty back. How much Australian dollars would I expect to pay for each spieces and what order would you add them in.

I have no idea what they would cost in Australian dollars since i am in Canada :P.

I would add the most dosile fish first and the most aggressive fish last. I would properly add the clowns last since they can hold their own and they will generally gain up on other fish. I think the flame angel is the least aggressive so I would add him first. Than probably the six-line wrasse and the purple dotty than the clowns last. This is just my best guess I would talk to your lfs first :P...

i would without a doubt add the clowns last. Word of warning clowns have a history of biting their owners. You might have a few thumb wars with them. They aren't big enough to cause any damage. If they really really like your tank and are feeling naughty they will probably lay eggs since they can change their sex at will.

Mandarin must be placed in a mature tank. They are expert only, because they are hard to get them feeding frozen food.

33g really limits your fish... You can put in a dwarf angel fish. Look at Liveaquaria.com. Give you tank sizes and compatibility charts.
