Hi
I have a small & young 60 litre, tropical aquarium. Its been running for 3 months and I currently have 2 Tomato Clowns which have been there for 2 months.

What would make good tank mates for these guys? Whatever you suggest, how many do you think I can have without overcrowding?

Among these suggestions, can you offer some housekeepers that will get along with my clowns - some algae eaters and floor cleaners?

Thanks in advance Very Happy
Kathy

Tomato clowns can get aggressive towards thier conspecifics if they don't have enough room, they can get up to 5 inches so I hope you can upgrade in the future... I would almost say you are maxed out if you don't plan on upgrading soon.

no more fish. thats it you've reached your stocking limit. thats one of the downsides of a small aquarium. I also agree an upgrade will be needed as a pair of tommato clowns will polute your tank water like no tommorow once they grow up!

You're already maxed. If you really want to add something even though you're maxed out, do something small like a neon goby or clown goby.
