    I think that would really depend on the types of clown fish you are talking about. I have seen Ocellaris and Percula successfully kept in the same tank, but I would even think about mixing them with maroon, cinnamon or tomatoes

    Just keep in mind, it is very very difficult to keep more than a pair in one tank unless you have a very very large tank

    And welcome to the forum
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I would suggest to look into some of the smaller gobies and maybe even firefish as well. Those would be better suited for a nano tank.

    Hey finally something I know enough to comment on.
    My previous tank (14 biocube) came with an Ocellaris and a Tomato Clown that had been together a couple years with no problems.
    Currently (in a 37 gallon tall tank) I have a traditional "Nemo" Ocellaris and a Black Ocellaris (same species, different color)

    As far as quantity, my LFS said the same thing as Cliff, recommending no more than a pair of Clowns. The more dominant one will likely become the female and the others may fight over the female.

    ***Note - I only post in the beginner saltwater forum so take my advise with a grain of saltwater.**

    Tomato clowns typically reach a max size of between 5 to 6 inches. That is not the best choice for a 20 gallon tank

    Clingfish and firefish would look cool.
