    Clown Vs. Clown

    I'm looking for opinions on housing two different types of clowns in a 77G tank. They would be 2 tomato's which are not a mated pair and I've had them for over 2 yrs. and a set of perc's. What do you think?

    I don't think you'll be able to put them together. They'll scrap and rip each other appart.

    If it wasn't for alfresson it'd be 2-0 leafs

    but about the clowns... i have one big sabae and one small tomato and they get along fabulously in my 42 reef...

    sometimes with clowns its individual based...

    It's funny you put clowns and Alfresson together and speaking of the geek, it's about time Krusty got the haircut,lol. :biglaugh2 I don't have a problem ditching the tomatoes, they were a freebie and not my favorite anyway!

    I have the same question on this matter. I have 2 anemones and was wondering if I can put 2 more clowns in my tank? I have 2 percs right now but wanted to get 2 clarks. Would they rip each other apart?

    i usually find clarke's to be more aggressive than perculas...

    if u can find clarkes that are smaller than ur percs that'd ideal... also.. are both ur anemeones hostable?

    Another species that interest me are the gobies, has anyone tried two of these. Let's say a smaller goby and a shrimp goby, what's the chances of them getting along? It lists use caution on Dr. Foster's & Smith's but has anyone tried this with success!

    Tomato Clowns are among the most aggressive and territorial of the clown fish you can put in your tank. Clowns which are members of the Damsel family are as a rule aggressive and territorial so putting these guys together in a 77 gallon tank is asking for trouble. I would suggest you avoid the loses that will most likely occur.
