Hey, I am pretty new at keeping clowns too. I have seven about 1.5 inches in a 65 gallon tank. I love them. I have had an outbreak of ick and now I have one with a suspected bacterial inf. (the type that disguise as fungal) But even though he is the smallest, he is faring very well. My tank has had much less than perfect conditions since I brought these babies home, and I have yet to lose one. Although they can be very sensitive, I have to believe they are also VERY hardy. And I think 6+ for these guys is really needed to feel secure. Every one of mine pile up every night inside a tiny cave and sleep all night together. A few even seemed to have trouble sleeping last night (kept coming out) and I am pretty sure it is because the little one is in the hospital. : )
I don't know much about your tank, how big, who all lives there, filter, temp, aeration, do you have good hiding plac
