So I just got my new pair of designer clowns.

One is a platinum. -1 inch
One is a premium snowflake. -3/4 inch. Tiny.

Some put them in my DT
First thing I noticed is the cardinals checking them out.
Then they were hanging near the overflow.
May fit through the teeth!
Got scared. I grabbed the little guys and put them in a big breeder net.
I now have a baby clown nursery in my tank.

They are hanging together. Super cute. My lady loves them.
Is there any fish I should worry about?
Or should I keep them there for a little bit. Till they grow?

I have a bangaii cardinal-1
3- pajama cardinals.
1 goby w pistol.
1 Midas Blenny.
1 diamond goby.
1 cleaner shrimp
1 blood shrimp.

This is in a 60 gal cube with 20gal sump.

Cute fish! I know what you mean about the overflow. I need to fashion some sort of guard for mine, since most of my fish are small and I'm forever worried that they'll slip through the teeth.

I am sure the clowns look awesome. I would try to put something over the overflow and let them roam the DT.
They need to go through the process of establishing a pecking order and becoming male and female. JMO.

those size of clowns should be put in a small 10 or 20g tank. until they get a bit bigger and can handle the flow of that size of aquarium. they are way to young to even start the battle of who's going to be the girl. for the price/size of those clowns, i wouldn't throw them in a DT until they are much bigger.
