Ten Gallons, two clowns?

http://liveaquaria.com/product/prod_...fm?pCatId=1114
Think I could have two clowns together in a tengallon. I dont intend on putting anything else in the ten gallon.

I have a 10 gallon setup with 1 clown right now. I planned on adding another one but I am afraid they may fight.

If your tank is cycled very well I think you can keep 2 clowns and a couple hermits in a 10 gallon. But it would be best to add the clowns at the same time.

I personally wouldn't do it...that's a little cramped for 2 perc. clowns. However I know of many who do pull it off without a hitch.
You'd definitely be fully stocked, and make sure the tank is 100% cycled first.

I got 2 percs in my nano tank. A 10g will house a pair of ocellaris or percs fine per Joyce Wilkerson's Clown Fish book.

You can add a new clown to form a pair at different times. when doing this make sure that the new clown to be added is a juvenile, and a lot smaller.

I just added a second clown to my 10 gallon. They are doing great. Hopefully they will pair up and mate someday.
