    Make sure the new clown is larger than the existing one. This can be quite a difficult task especially if you cannot isolate the existing clown, if necessary.

    What type nemmie have you got ?

    How long has your system been running ?

    Very nice :) The nemmie looks very healthy.

    Clarki's love those nemmies.

    Could be quite a battle getting a pair in this tank as Clarki's are notoriously aggressive to all other clowns regardless of species.

    If you have anyone that can take your existing clown for a week or so, then the new clown can establish himself before the big mamma comes back ;)

    Nemmie looks awesome mate! What lighting upgrades have you done cos I know the TL550 is poor to say the least in terms of light.

    Also noticed it, maybe give it a good clean as it will improve performance. Soak it it in vinegar to help get most of the coraline off.
