Ive been wanting to get a pair for my clown but cant really deside what species she is. I heard maroon from a friend but this clown isnt maroon although she is developing orange on her stripes, any input will be apreciated

Looks like a Maroon. Developing orange on her stripes? Juvenile fish, changing to mature colors. Sounds like the Yellow Stripe Maroon Clownfish.

Well yours look like its still a juvenile, which might mean it is giong to change color as it matures. What color is it now? It looks like its chocolate ish in color. ??

It's dark orange with neon orange outlines, black tail and bottom fins, and stripes are turning orange

Look towards the bottom of this one. It also has a list of Clowns.

with all the different clown variations now a days i doubt you'll get a specific answer unless you know what type of clowns it came from. if i had to guess, i would also say juvi maroon but again, it could very well be a maroon x percula crossbreed of some sort.

your best bet may be to let it mature alittle bit making it become a female, then getting a maroon much smaller to be the male.
