false perc and maroon clowns
 
ok so i am getting a new 60 gallon tank, and i have a 20 gallon now. but i already have 2 false perc clowns. i wanted to get a pair of maroon clowns to put in the 60 gallon. i know you can put clown fish together, but i was wondering if i introduce them all into the tank at the same time, would they fight?

They have always faught in my tanks as well as two friends. With my tank and one friend it was maroons being the aggressors on a tomato and false per. and the other was a tomato aggression on a false per. tank sizes 135, 140, and 75 gallon.

you tank is to small for 2 sets of clowns. they will fight and eventually one will die. we have a 120 gallon and i wouldnt even attempt it in that. si just keep one pair.

I can attest that the maroons are the most evil of all clowns. I adore mine but would never ever think of trying to add another clown to the tank for them to terrorize. It is also not a good practice to mix clown species.

I added another to mine and got real lucky that the orginal one didnt kill the new one. Now they are always together.

I added the same species to one of my clowns and it worked well but they both are very young.
I haven´t tried different kinds of the clowns becaise everybody told me not to do it. Even the lfs told me.

Regarding the maroons, those can be really evil. I know one which is always trying to attack your fingers as soon as they are under the water and he bites ! This guy even looks evil ! :shock2:

yeah, maroons are the meanest clowns in my opinion. but i wouldnt trade mine for anything, had him since he was an itty bitty thing.
