Once it hits Zero it's fine. There will be loads of life on the rock itself to support biofiltration. If you wait a while after hitting Zero stock slowly. Each fish will need a week or two to allow the bacteria to establish itself in proper numbers.
clownfish are pretty hardy. How bigs your tank? If you relly want to put both clowns in at the same time you can by amonia and nitrite nutralizers.
Dose that for the first week or so and your clowns should be fine.
oh, well then get out, joking, its ok, as long as the help is logical and isnt like add freshwater fish to the saltwater tank to help it grow 50 times its normal size and grow super powers that can save the world.
I would have said more but almost everyother posts here lately has been "I want to add 2 clowns to a 20g". As much as Musho participates I can't imagine he hasn't seen the numerous replies. 20g tanks should have smaller fish. Not saying you can't make it work but you ought to find more suitable fish.
ive seen them, but mainly saying you cant have an anemone in a 20 gallon, ive seen very few threads about clowns, plus these are oscellarius and (i think) are smaller than most clowns. Im not going to put any anemones in here, maybe a mushroom coral but thats it.
Also from my amount of questions that im asking (i want this saltwater tank to be perfect) this was the first time someone has said two clowns are no good.
well to add to my reply, technically clowns shouldnt really be in anything less that 30 gallons. We did have our 2 in a 20 gallon and had no problems, but it doesnt mean that every 20 gallon is going to be like this. Just like everyone is different, every tank is different. And what works for us may not work for you. Just keep that in mind ok.
well i was asking was it a territorial problem or waste problem, thats all, no need to get fussy lol. I guess i could try, maybe change the water every day and get tripple filtration, its worth a shot i hope......
