If you want a mated pair, get 2 juvenile clowns of a same species. They will fight at first to decide which one is stronger, which will turn into the female of the pair, but no biggy. I don't know which kind is most readily to accept an anemone, sorry.

Purple tang is a stunning fish. If you want to get it, just make sure it is the last tang added to the tank

If I do get two clowns, they have to be sold together or a male,female pair right?
Clowns will be the same sex, as FF said. One will become larger and female, the smaller, male. As far as I know, clowns will host an anenmoe, but this is not always the case. Sometime, they just don't do it, and other time, they take a long time to host. There are certain anenmoes that clowns will not host, because they are from different oceans and are not seens in nature. I believe the Atlantic anenmoes will not (but possibly can) host a clown.

I just remember what a guy at the LFS told me. He said tomato clowns have the best chance of hosting anemones.

LOL! $499.99 for a clown. That is quite the investment!

Hi everyone,

Here is my update. I got 15 more lbs of LR, so far. It has some stuff growing on it already! A tiny piece of purple coral, some bubbly covering stuff, something that looks like flat Goniopora Coral??,(both greenish white) and some algae

I want to make sure this stuff continue to grows..hmmm...any hints?

I have a mithrax crab, large hermit, 3 tiny tiny hermits, and maybe 12 snails in various sizes. 4 damsels. Had a shrimp but he is missing...

Everything is good except the nitrite is STILL too high, its been about 4 weeks since its been cycling.

Brown algae on the bottom..hard to get rid of with just snails and tiny little hermits.

Everything sound normal?

Good water conditions will help.

Pretty much, sounds like your cycle is almost over. You probably lost the shrimp due to the cycle...
