Ok so I'll put these products away, and im wondering if an aussie black clown and a perc would mate? I'm going to upgrade the water pump when I get back in town, and check my water. Would it be wise to buy my own test kit? And thanks for the compliment, it really looks great in person when you can get a feel for all the pathways I've tried to create

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.

Pretty much what he said.

It's a black percula, would a normal orange percula be able to stay in the same tank?

I am speaking of a pure black and white clown, no orange on it. Would this type be able to inhabit the tank with a true perc?

See yours has an orange face, I am looking for one that's completely black and white.

Yes, you still ok using the Black and White. He was refering to getting the same genus Clown. Like you shouldn't keep your Black and White with a Clarki, the Clarki would kick the crap outta the Ocellaris.
This is the fish in which you are refering to.

Yes that's the one. How can you tell that it's going to be all black when looking at a juvenile? I'm going to browse around if my cycle is done. I get off a day early for thanksgiving so I'll be home in the morning. Straight to the lfs with my water for a test. I gotta buy my own though as well.

The one in my picture is not the same as the one that he posted above mine. They are 2 different fish.
