I know my clowns Will most likely Get along better as they get used to each other but how will I know which one is a male or a female. Right now one swims back and forth the whole length of my tank 41/2 feet and the other just floats around. They were put in around a week apart and the lasts one was added on Saturday.

Please anyone know or want to give me your Best input on this one! I just want happy clowns that are not chasing each other!

Thanks! ~

The one that becomes larger will be the female.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

What is the size difference between the two? Not always but sometimes if you add a larger one and a smaller one the will become a mated pair with the larger one becoming a female. As I said there is no guarantee though.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
