If you have 2 clownfish the bigger of the two is the female. And if they are both the same size just wait until you see one show'n it's dominance and that one will become the female.

How big is your resident clown? How long have you had him? My wife insists I say I(she) is offended by the female aggression statements! But can't say I disagree.

Human females are dominant. Just like clownfish. Keep that in mind.
