    It helps to decide on which type of clowns you're looking for, and then look for a reputable vendor. They can either source a wild clown, or tank-bred one. Like dog breeders, many clownfish breeders specialize in certain breeds, and there are the equivalent of backyard breeders and puppy mills. For example, you can get a Picasso from a large breeder that may have many defects, but will be very cheap, all the way up to a nicely colored fish with minimal defects for hundreds of dollars.
