One Clown died out of a pair

Hello,

We had a pair of clowns for years and the smaller of the 2 (assuming male) died.

What are the chances of the remaining one pairing up with a new one?

Thanks,

Don

Just make sure it's smaller than the current one.

Are all A. ocellaris the same despite "designer" clowns?

You can pair w/ any type or color of ocellaris, and possibly percula.

Not just smaller, but small enough to still be male for sure, no bigger than an inch and a quarter.

Intro in a clear container, observe female, sometimes they don't accept certain males and she may be fussy if recently separated from her male
