I have lost my female clown, she has just disappeared so now I have male left with royal gramma in the tank. He seems quite lost without her. Will I be able to pair him up again or just live him be?

Sorry to hear :(
If you leave him on his own he will become a she.
I'd suggest getting another small one ASAP and letting them decide dominance.

Yeah, had them almost a year I'm just about to swap my tank to bigger one so I should fetch him a partner next week. Thanks!

My tank is small, 94l Kent marine, I checked everywhere, I had my male jumping over to back chambers before and had to net him out but she's not visible anywhere
I'll be stripping my tank soon anyway but my hopes are gone

I had a rear filter tank and my blenny went missing for a month I thought he had died until I fed the  tank and  as the food went into the rear chambers I saw him come to the surface for food.

As everyone has said,get a small one to replace and they will sort themselves out.  :D

I would hold off buying a new one until you have moved tanks  you may have a unknown  predator ,was ill or jumped out ether way it needs investigating otherwise your new clown may go the same way .
