    Can i keep more then just a pair of Ocellaris/percula clownfish?

    Have a pair (not 100% sure if they Ocellaris or percula), and wanted to know if i can get some more. I think i read sometimes if there are more then a pair they will fight.

    Depends on the size of your tank and which clown you wish to add and what the size of that clown will be. Sorry a bit vague but its not always easy, if your two are happy and settled i`d be tempted to just leave them be and not add any more.

    I know different species of clown are prone to fighting, but if you put more of the same clowns in I don't think there should be a problem, I mean the LFS's bomb about 20 of them into a small 2 foot tank and they all seem to be pretty happy with each other, but then perhaps if your two have already established a territory inside the tank they may try to defend it against other clown fish.
