It should be fine in your tank for at least a year or two I’d think. If not, I’ll need a bigger tank sooner than I planned on I’m also new to this so take that with a grain of salt

I just read yesterday that long fin clownfish like mine only get to about 3” and are more suitable for 20 gal than a lot of other clowns! Maybe you should give that a try though they also may not live as long due to the focus of their breeding being on appearance and not good genetics

i already had purchased a new clown i honestly am not a fan of breeding fish with long fins i just personally find it unethical but here is my new clown she is an ocellaris and im currently trying to pair her with a juvenile wyoming white and she is doing good so far gonna leave him in a breeder box in the tank for 48hours to avoid any immediate aggression from her since she is about fully grown

Oh wow nice fish! Wyoming White Clowns are designer clowns like longfins so I’m not sure it’s any more ethical to breed them than it is the latter. Their health just depends on the individual breeder and how much they care about the fish and the knowledge they possess about them. I’m curious what about it you find unethical though! Maybe there’s something I don’t know

I’m not trying to argue my point, I’m genuinely just curious.

no arguing here!! I come from the freshwater community and in my experience especially with fish like beta fish they just end up being extremely unhealthy or living a harder life because of their physical traits like long fins and from fish perspective I can only imagine it’s more difficult to swim with longfins in heavier flow for especially something like a clownfish, just like its harder on womens backs for people that have bigger boobs but on the topic of this fish being “designer” im honestly not too aware of the health problems that may occur from it im just basing my ethics off of experience not so much fact

Oh okay that makes perfect sense! I can definitely see that being an issue in medium-high flow tanks and maybe even some low flow tanks for certain clowns. That’s fair to base it off of experience as that is usually more reliable than what the internet says hahaha
