It's ultimately up to you. If you decide that it's ok, then it doesn't really matter what anyone tells you. It's like asking if its okay to keep a 140lb german Shepard in a small apt. It would need extra attention and long walks every day. The difference is that you cant take a fish out of its aquarium to give it exercise. You need to decide that you can give the fish a good home and that it will have plenty of swimming room and clean water. Do some research on clowns. Find what the smallest species is. Find out how active they are. Then make your decision. I will say that many people think it is bad fish keeping to keep a clown in anything less than a 20 gal
while others think it's ok. The decision lies with you and how you feel about it. Another option would be looking into upgrading to a 20 gal
. You can usually find used tanks on Craigslist for good prices. And petco has $1 per gallon sales every so often, so a 20 gallon would only be $20. I would personally look into upgrading to a larger tank and then getting a clown. Definitely do your research.
