    i've got 2 of the orange clowns and a tomato clown in the same tank. the Tomato is much larger than the others and does not bother them except when its feeding time.
    My tank is pretty much the same size as yours. The Tomato did take over the Frogspawn that was home to the 2 little guys. But their fine.

    Hey Nizaam
    I have a pair of tomato clowns and a pair of African clowns in same tank. bUT I think it's important to add my tank is pretty big at 1500 litters.
    Fellow reefers can correct me if I'm wrong , but I believe it's discouraged as strke rate not that hot for success unless larger tank

    Hope that helps

    I got maroon, allards, oscerlaris in a 1800x610x610, and when I introduce a new one, I sump it, then that night catch the others and sump them with the newbie for a week. I then put the newbie in the dt first, later that day the others, I got true percs coming next week and am sure they will be fine.

    When you say sump them do you mean putting them in the sump?

    Hi, I have 3 tomato clowns and a pair of Clarkii clowns. the Clarkii's are bout 4 times the size of the tomatoes and they dont fight. The reason here I think is because each of them have someting to host in and that they where put it at more or less the same time...
