It is a new tank but I've been keeping an eye on water quality.  The tank 
is heavily planted and many types are growing like crazy.  Last night one 
of the clowns came out about half an hour before the timer goes off.  He 
cruised around, checked out other tank mates, etc.  He looked pretty 
good.  I am planning on adding more as I know they liked to be in 
groups.  I was hoping 3 or 4 would be enough but I may need more.  I'll 
have to grow new snails somewhere for this many clowns.  :)
