    Well, I found somehow my black saddleback died. It was fine last night and possible wedged itself under a rock with the new moonlight. It was a large fish and the other 3 clowns, 1 black saddle and 2 oscellaris orange, are small. If i get a new larger one will it work?

    I don't advise having more than one pair of clowns, as they mature they will almost always fight.
    Also keep in mind they are hermaphrodites, male when small, then dominant one will become female, so it's possible what you have now may become female if not already, so getting a larger clown will most likely be fem, and possibly fight.

    One pair only would be my advice, not even a trio.
    It may appear to be OK for some time, but one day eventually it will most likely get ugly.
