Young ocellaris clowns
I have recently purchased 2 young clowns (ocellaris) and my LFS advised me to keep them seperate (In my 10 Gal. Quar. tank) until they are a bit larger. In my 75 Gal tank where they will eventually reside, I have 1 Yellow tang, 1 Blue tang and 2 chromis. None of these fish are bigger than 3 inches or so. The clowns are appr. 1 1/2" now. Does this sound like the right process to follow for the clowns? How big should I allow the clowns to get before I acclimate them to the main tank? Thanks for any help.
i dont understand why he wants to seperate them due to size but putting your clowns in a quarantine tank is always good as you do not know what diseases they may have and dont want those spreading to the main tank. As for the clown size, some of those fish mentioned are quite territorial and the clowns may not put up at a fight at the size and age you have them. An experienced member will come along and let you know for sure.

I don't see why the clowns should be separated because of size. Quarantine them however for 6-8 weeks before placing them in the main tank.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
