    Real Name:
    Was interested in getting a clown and noticed there wasn't anything specifically about different clowns. So I did some research and wish to share, though I got a bit lazy and just started naming only. Please let me know if there is anything to add/change.

    General info about all clowns:
    From what I can tell, all clownfishes are very hardy and requires little maintanence.
    All of them seem to accept all kinds of frozen foods and flakes.
