Clownfish or Cardinal? Which to add first?


Recommended Posts

I going to buy a Baggi Cardinal and a pair of Clownfish to add to my Biocube 29 and I want to know which one I should add first? I'm thinking the Cardinal should go first since Clownfish tend to be territorial? Also, how long should I wait before I add the other fish? I was thinking about 5 days should be sufficient so I dont overload my tank's bioload.

If your tank is fully cycled you can add them at once. It shouldn't be to stressful, but if you want to add one at a time go with the cardinal first, then clown.

Thanks for the quick replies! My tank is fully cycled but I think I'm going to go with the slower approach just to be careful, don't wanna rush things. So the Cardinal is definitely going in before the clowfish are.

does'nt matter, add the clown first it establishes territory, might bully cardinals for a little while, but then back off.


add cardinal first, clown bullies a little to establish a teritory, things get peaceful


add both at same time same thing, so it really doesn't matter.
