I have one small oscellaris clown that is quickly outgrowing a 2 gallon Fluval and plan to put him and a new clown in it in a few days/week. Should I put the 2 in at the same time? Do they need to be the same size? Any ideas on the ceramic/terracotta pot thing & anything else would be greatly appreciated.
I would personally introduce them at the same time. If it all possible try and get the new fish a little bigger than you currently have. Clowns are hermaphrodites and the larger one will have a greater chance of turning into a female (they are the larger and more aggressive of the species). The terracotta pot deal is in hopes that they will host it and lay the eggs there. Anybody with a little more knowledge please correct me if I am wrong as I will be doing the same shortly.
