Not long term. The minimum tank size is 4ft/75 gal for it to have a better chance. The more room, the more likely the tang will be with you along time to come

Cheers
Steve

Maroons should only be kept by themselves or as a mated pair. I would never recommend keeping them with other species of clowns. They are not intentionally destructive to corals but there is always the chance they could host in a more sensitive LPS that may damage it. That is true of any clown though

The ocellaris would be fine in a 12 gal tank.

Maybe you could get a toadstool leather too if your lighting is good enough, then the clowns could rub around on it and make it their home. Toadstool leathers are easy to keep, if you are going to get corals anyway you might want to consider one.

Well ill try to convince my parents to let me change our 12 gallon planted freshwater tank to a 12 gallon nano for my ocellaris. I will try to get rid of all the other fish in the 55 and get a pair of maroons. I will also look into a toadstool leather. Will it be ok under 220watts of PC? Also is it easy to find maroon pairs or do i have to try and make one myself.
THANKS

A wide variety of soft and LPS corals would do well under that lighting as long as the water parameters are maintained properly.

Not normally. Most times I have seen them they are by themselves or too large to try and pair. Might try asking your LFS or favoirite on-line shop if they can special order them. If you can, I would definately try to get something from >>ORA Farms<<. They mght not be mated when you get them but should be small enough to "grow into it". That and the fact they are tank raised, will greatly improve the succes rate.

Cheers
Steve
