    Anyone ever consider this? Thinking of trying it in the 200. How many do y’all think I need to do it? Can they be different types if they are all about the same size and added together. Was thinking at least 10...

    I saw that! Wonder is 10 is enough or if I’ll need more to avoid some aggression issues.

    Found one recommendation that says "I'd do one clown for every four to five gallons" to establish a harem. Also says the best results (lowest aggression) come from buying from the same clutch. And anemones will reduce aggression.

    I guess that would be 40 to 50 clowns...I didn't do the math in my post above, but that seems like way too many. I'd shoot for 15-20
