Sorry for your loss. Don't get another clown now. Once you have one established, they will fight each other - to the death. You need to get true pairs when it comes to clowns.

This can be true, or in some cases they will not.

I introduced a clown that was just plain evil. I took him back got another one that was very passive. The clown was in the tank for I guess around 4 months. 3 weeks ago, I introduced a new smaller clown to the tank. They did not fight at all. In fact they are now a mated pair. They go everywhere together.

I guess in some rare cases they can be put together. If you decide to get another, make sure with the lfs that if one is aggressive towards the other they will let you bring it back for credit.

I went out a bought a test kit the day after the clown died...and the water tested great on all aspects...0 Ammonia, <0.3 Nitrite, the specific gravity actually jumped on me a little, which was odd since I was trying to lower it. I think the shrimp just didn't adjust well since it stayed hidden in a rock for the duration of his stay with us. The clown always looked a little sickly though, so I think that we just got a lemon. Once again, thanks for all of the advice guys.
