Clown fish...

We have started another 75 gallon aquarium. We want to put Ocellaris clown fish in it, Can we have more than 2 in there? We want at least 2 anemones. What other suggestions for fish? We are trying out a sand less bottom.

I wouldnt recommend it. There's lots of possibilities in a tank that size I'd defo look at some dwarf angles, foxface, maybe a toby puffer. Clowns can go with a lot of stuff so would deepened if you have your eye on another fish?

We are only set on the clown fish and nothing else at this point. We already have a predator tank so we want to stay away from that side.

as far as multiple pairs of clowns, again not really recommended, but it can happen. The skunks are the most peaceful with other clowns. you could get pink or orange.

I heard as long as you put all the Clowns in together they should be fine, it's when you add more later that it becomes a problem.

Maybe if you add all the Clowns you want in at once they will be fine together?

My only concern would be the Shock to the Bio-Load.

I would suggest a Six Line Wrasse and a Flame Angel. :-p That was what I was going to do but I got two Clowns for my tank. I am still adding a Six Line Wrasse, but not the Flame Angel.

I wanted a Flame Angel and everyone said it would be fine in a 29 gallon, but I didn't want to risk having it and not upgrading in the future. Since you got a 75 already, I would get one!!
