You take a gander at how big those clams get? HUGE. Then again, it takes forever to.

They get about a foot long, no? And I know you said that Occy Clowns cannot be in a 10 gallon, I'm guessing the same applies to 1 Percula, too? I love Black and White Perculas.

The recommended size for those fish is 20g. I know of some who do keep them in 10g. But, if you do, only put one in. And I agree, the Black and White Percs are awesome.

And, forgot to mention, in such a small tank, they would gobble up the calcium fast, you'd have to keep a good eye on that. The clams that is.

I wouldn't do more than one. I know Clowns can get aggresive, Ill look into them more, so either Black Percula or Mandarin Dragonette with a Flame Scallop, hrmm....

Emo Nemos rule :P Reefing Madness, is 10 gallons considered cruel for Clownfish? Like, for Betta fish, 5 is considered good, 2.5 the minimum, and below that cruel. I know a 20 gallon would be like the 5, but would a Clown in a 10 gallon affect it's lifespan in any way?

a single clown is fine in a 10. except maroon clowns, they need a larger tank.

not in a 10 but a pair ive had for 3-4 years

Daw, they're so cute :) I just love Clownfish, aren't they pretty hardy, too? For a Marine Fish, I mean.
