That small amount of room would have aggression issues between the clowns...and the cinnamon will probably win.

Do you think if I managed to get a mated pair of clowns?

Understand about the coffee. I have a bonded pair in the reef tank. I am now stocking the 40b FOWLR. Looking for red fish to make it pop. Clowns were my first thought. I can use suggestions for other red fish that will work with a sunrise dottyback, valentini puffer, yellow assessor and cleaner shrimp.

Oh, if this is a different tank then a different pair of clowns would be a go.

Great! I will see about finding a pair in about another week. Don't want to add fish too quickly. Another question: When I was vacuuming the sand so much, it is gone in the back entirely and low in the front. I need to raise the level. Slowly. I have some Florida Crushed Coral. If I added this a half cup at a time and mixed it in with the live sand already in there, would this cause a mini-cycle? With all that's gone on in this tank, I sure don't want to create more problems. Or would a different type of substrate be better to combine?

I found some more Ocean Direct live sand, obviously not alive anymore, which is what's in there now. The problem with this is that it's sugar sand and when I was vacuuming, it was removing the sand rapidly. I can still use the crushed coral if that would be better. Now that I have fishes in the tank, I don't want them socked in with sand. What would be the suggestion as far as what to use and how to get it in there without stirring everything up so much? BTW, the Green Killing Machine is awesome! Water is beautifully clear. 😄

glad to see your crystal clear again , I know that is a big weight off your shoulder , glad the grand kids can finally see the fish again , I always tried to avoid crushed coral as I was always told it could cut up fish with the sharp shards , but I got no personal experience with crushed coral so I have no idea,

Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with the clear water, and grand babies love the fish. Still considering the next fish, but would like to add the sand first.

Can anyone help me with suggestions about adding additional live sand or crushed coral to a tank with fish without creating a whirlwind or another cycle?
