    I don't have experience, but I was curious and found this.

    https://www.fishlore.com/profile-clowntang.htm

    Two things I saw notable:

    - extremely active swimmers and need well oxygenated water
    - can go on hunger strike because they don't ship well

    Also that link mentions they have a poor survival rate.
