buy them young or buy them of different sizes, you can never guarantee expected fish behaviour (i.e. tank bred clowns won't necessarily inhabit your nem, or copperbands don't always chow on your aptasia etc etc) but leave them alone and nature may well take it's course..or not:)

Chuckle chuckle Messy children. But thats the secret potion. The mama must be suitably big enough to whip dads .....

cool, would love my maroon to breed, but they are very aggressive when they grow bigger. my maroon is still small, think there is time to quickly add another in the hopes that they will pair up?
