there is a chance clowns will mate but only time will tell that. your just looking for your clowns to bond to start...
what kind of clown exactly is the black one? its from aus, yes but is it a perc, occy, saddleback..?
putting same species together is your best bet IMO, although i have seen mixed pairs it will be easier to get 2 of the same species of clownfish.
i do suggest your own test kits, the droplet kind, for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, ph, alk, mag, cal,thermometer for temp, and a refractometer for salinity. those are the minimum suggested tests, check ebay for the refracto.
having them test at the store, you never know how consistant the testing employee is, if they even know what they are doing, or if they say your water is "fine" so you buy one of their fish.
