    Hi guys.
    I arrived home last night to find that my one Clarkii Clown had jumped out and died.
    Water parameters are fine except for the phosphate that is a bit high. The one that jumped is (I mean was) the bully of the two.

    1. Any ideas on why the Clown would have jumped?
    2. What would happen if I add another Clarkii Clown again?

    Hi, I had a clown that jumped, it could be a number of reasons. Most fish will jump when startled and they don't always know they are in a glass box.
    U should be able to if its smaller or the same size

    Agreed!

    Clownfish can be jumpers! Apparently this one thought the grass was greener on the otherside. Apparently it was not! :(
