Alright so I bought 2 spotcinctus clownfish today and I want to breed them. I am going to leave them under my tank in a 10 gallon tank. I am going to have a clay pot in there with a heater. They are young so it may take them a while to grow in a smal tank. Can you answer these questions:

Do I need anything else to set this up?
Should I put the 2 clownfish in my 55 gallon tank until they grow up?
How long will it take them to pair and how will I know (I think they might be paired already because they follow each other around and I don't know f that's just them being clownfish)?
Once they lay eggs do I remove he parents or the clay pot they laid eggs on?
Can I crush my marine micro pellets into a powder and feed them that?
Please answer these questions I'm new to breeding things.

There is a book called clownfishes by joyce wilkerson. That is a good read to get you started.

As for food your gonna need phyto and rotifers dry foods will not work very well if at all.

What they said ... Plus you'll have plenty of time to read up and research until they start looking like they'll want to spawn[emoji39]

Clowns can take a while to breed. I would watch for them taking gender roles if not already 1 male/1 female as that's one of the major milestone steps. However, I would suggest reading up on as above posts recommend.
