T-Clown

I have set up a new 120 litre tank.I have decided I will keep only fish.What fish will be appropiet in this new tank.The bed has maturated and it is ready to put in fish.

I am thinking to put T-Clowns.I have heared that they would die without anemones.Is it true?I have heared of keeping clowns with out anemones.But I am hearing that this clown is an exception.Is it true???

Thanks for replying..............

T-clown as in tomato clown? Clowns can live just fine without an anemone, and in fact, many tank raised clownfishes don't know what to do with an anemone even if one is provided. The relationship between clown and anemone is something that is "learned" in the wild, and most tank raised clownfishes never learn because they don't have parents to teach them.

clowns dont need an anemone to survive.....this goes for all clown species. we have 2 maroon clowns with no anemone and they are thriving just fine.
