    The clowns could be together for years until they mate or it could be months or even never. But once they do you will be all set. Go onto YouTube and type clownfishdirect and see how he mates, seem like a good way.

    Good Luck!

    most likely you're going to have to set up a dedicated rearing tank if you actually want to try this. start culturing rotifers and phyto, and google around and find out how long the larval freeswimming stage is. with peppermints it's around 6 weeks, with cleaners it's around 16, so you might be in for a long haul.
