Clownfish mating advice???

Iíve had a lightning maroon in my tank by itself for a few years and decided I would like to mate him/her. She/He is quite big and I was wondering is there anyway I can do so? Add a clownfish similar size? Much smaller? How would I go about doing this? I also donít know if this info helps but she/he is bonded with an anemoneÖ

You'll want to add a smaller maroon clown, very small. After QTing the new clown hang a clear breeder box into the tank and place it in there so your established clown can see it but not attack it. It may need to stay in the breeder box for some time if your clown shows aggression.


The only thing to fear is fear itself....and spiders.

You want a a smaller then what you have. I successfully paired it with a golden nugget n laid eggs every two weeks.

On a side note, what an incredible specimen! Congrats on keeping it big and healthy.
