pretty territorial and both being bottom dwellers doesn't sound like a good match.

And similar body shapes. What size tank? Maye not enuf territory for similars. I'm guessing in a larger tank there'd be no problem.

they should have plenty of room together. the tank is 90 gallons. at the moment they seem to be ignoring eachother. i had a similar situation with two clownfish. i got them together and were fine. 4 monthes later one started attacking the other one to the point were i had to give him away. fish are alot more intelligent than i ever thught
