    hey i have hopes of breeding clowns, I actaully took apart my reef so i can only have clowns. I bought three clowns several weeks ago, waiting for two to pair off then rehome the third. last week my dads tank sprung a leak. i had to take his clowns in with mine. so for the last week i have had 6 clowns in my small 29 gallon. i know once a pair is established there can be aggresion towards the runt. my question is for 7 days there has been no aggression no nipping no chaisn no nothing. is it possible they can co exist. and is it possible i can still have a breeding paid in this tank.???

    Can they co exist? Yes but not for very long
    a breeding pair? Not in my research.. Supposedly a pair gets pretty agresive in a tank.
