Yes they are compatible, the larger one was the female the males are generally smaller. Clown fish have the ability to change sex. The largest male will change sex to make a mating pair. The female will be the dominate fish and may chase the male a little, it's normal. You should not have a problem if you replace it. If you have a jumping fish problem a friend taught me a trick, take some plastic bird netting and put that over the top of the tank. Be careful the light doesn't melt it though.

Hey Ya'll,

Quick question, Never maintained a salt water aquarium before. My son has a 24"x24"x24" tank. We moved it from his apartment to my home, since he's going to Afghanistan for 1 year.

We moved it on the 26th of Dec. 2009, The flamming angel has a white tip on it's face and beginning of tail is whitish. Thought it may have been stress due to the move, but has not regained color since. Bought some 100% organic fungicide for that.

The tank has been working fine. Last night my wife fed the fish. One small & one large common clown. This afternoon I found the large one on the floor, must have jumped out overnight.

Looking to replace it - But are they compatible separately? they were both as a pair.

Hi, dont know if anyone can answer this. I want to set up a marine tank and wondering if 2 percula clowns will be fine in a 60 lt tank to themselves.

I got my clowns a couple of days ago, cool little fish. they are very friendly and play with each other all day and even swim together. I don't know if this is normal, but I love them!

I got a small marine tank for Christmas yesterday with a clownfish and a yellow tail damsel. I realized it is a rare mis-barred clownfish. That makes me quite happy.

i've had my ocellaris for about 4 months now in a 30 gallon. he's very active and friendly. i've never seen him act aggressive towards any of my other fish, some of which are gobies and quite small. great fish for a beginner and anyone that wants a beautiful fish for a great price.

ive had my clownfish for about 3 weeks but already they are the best fish i've had so far. they bring something to my aquatium that none of my other fish do, and so easy to take care of. im now going to try to breed them, hopefully everything goes good.
