I have never heard of one. They come in different types and different sizes.

Don't think so, at all. The smallest species of clownfish are Ocellaris. They don't grow quite as large as the other species.

A pair? I would suggest not. They are messy eaters and their bioloads are rather large for the size of fish that they are. I would highly suggest 20 gallons and higher for a pair. A single one however, could probably do fine in a 10G. An understocked 10G at that.

Yes. For the relatively small size of clownfish, they have larger bioloads. Not comparable to a tang of course... but still a large bioload for their size.

No worries. I'm getting a 29 gallon. Just a pair of clowns. Live rock, love sand, power heads,filter, heater, protein skimmer. So excited. Any tips on curing the live sand?
