I think you may have too many clownfish in there. Have they shown any aggression towards each other? Also, the amount of fish you can put depends on what type of fish.

I would remove 1 species of clownfish from the tank.

shortysteve23 08-19-2011 07:55 PM

Nope no sign of aggression they've all been put in at the same time

shortysteve23 08-19-2011 07:56 PM

I've seen tanks with more than I have but if you suggest it I may take one out but they've all been pretty good I monitor them alot

If they are getting along you will be fine. Taking one species out would just be necessary if one species is bullying another. Usually Black and Ocellaris clowns get along well though

Are any of the orange clowns paired up? If they are, I would take out the lone one since they may start picking on him.

Yea they seem to keep there distance only really come together DINNER TIME, but it's a group of three and a group of 2, if snapping occurs should I take out the aggressive one? And besides the clowns do you think it's to many fish in this tank?

shortysteve23 08-19-2011 08:02 PM

Yea actually it kinda does seems as tho two have paired I'm going to go home and take a deep look again I have that's kinda bigger than the rest and eats alot second is neutral and third just kinda chillin

Does it look crowded? The only fish I think will get too big for the tank is the blue tang, other than that you're good. You might even be able to add a fish or 2 depending how big they get.
