Since the male really likes his current place, I would probably swap the clown for a female bn. I don't know if the other fish will be a problem. My bns have spawned in my tank and the male really protects those eggs -- its once they are free swimming that you will have a problem. Both of my bns loved the spot under the sponge filter. I got rid of it and the pair spawned in a cave that is probably a little small and failed to (I believe) successfully fertilize the eggs.

Best of luck with whatever you decide! If you succeed, let me know how you protected the babies in a community tank!

That is so funny -- after all that planning!

Good luck, you never know!

And where did you get the name Cthulhu?
