Looking Good.. Odd... most people don't start with Clowns

I bought 2 False P Clowns as my first fish too... I should have bought them from different stores though as I've most likley got siblings. You should look to get another one as they will most likely pair up. Mine are just about ALWAYS next to each other in the tank. They even sleep on top of each other in front of the tank on the sandbed.

Well, clowns are better looking than damsels if you want to know if the water is good or not , so I started with clowns too, just 1. Drew, make sure if you get a new one it's bigger, because if they're not introduced at the same time, the older one will attack the newcomer, especially if they're smaller in size

YEP.. 4year old and 2year old..

Mine are named Nemo and Marlin (the fish, not the kids)... Very Original

It's tough trying to explain to a 4year old that we can't buy Dory at the LFS because our tank is too small.

Your Tank is plenty big.. You have ALOT of good options when it comes to stocking. Just give the clowns a few weeks to make sure all is good with your tank.

Drew, always try with one fish first, I think it will be better, you can buy a pair, but since you already got one, just see how it goes, give and take about a month, after that you can start adding a new fish. By thumbs rule, it's supposed to be 1 fish per month, but I think if you introduced 2 together since ur tank is huge, it should be alright.

Remember, keep checking the water parameters make sure that your tank is good.
