If you are wanting to breed them definitely get Clownfishes by Joyce D. Wilkerson, it is very good for breeding clowns. You may also want to get Conditioning, Spawning and Rearing of Fish With Emphasis on Marine Clownfish by Frank H. Hoff. In addition to these, this one may help too, The Complete Illustrated Breeder's Guide to Marine Aquarium Fishes by Matthew L. Wittenrich, Martin A. Moe, Alf Jacob Nilsen, and Scott W. Michael

Do you understand that an established pair of clownfish will kill new additions?

I do realize that but the two i have are definitely not a breeding pair, they are hardly ever side by side. Will they still kill any new clowns? Thank you for the recommendations of those books by the way.

How big are they?
How long have you had them?
What size tank is it?

Most likely it still would not end up going very well.

they are about an inch and a half to two inches each.
about 6 months.
and just a 30 gallon tank.

I definitely would not add any, they will become a pair.
