That's a great looking pair of clowns! Nice pics, thanks for sharing. Got a FTS up your sleeve?

The good old aquarium page, sorry, I forgot to look there! The tank looks great.

(I wish I could say I was taking the plunge tomorrow but the way things are it won't be until June before I can start setting one up)

nice looking tank I love the dual colors on your clowns -- they are sweet looking!!!!

I was going to get a blank clown as well. but I heard that they really don't get a long too well.
I'm going with two regular false perculas and see if they are better -- one is in my tank currently has a holding cell until my friend is able to setup their other tank. I'm also waiting on my flame angel -- 2 more weeks to go.
Got a bunch of inverts now in the tank -- loving it! =D

Thank you. The black clown was a last minute decision. He was holding to orange false percs and had a pair of black ones in the store for three weeks. I switched off and bought one of each and so far it is working out well.

I don't know if the statement about the clowns getting along together is correct. Both are false perc clowns so I don't see any reason why you couldn't get a black one of the same species to go with your orange one. You may have an issue introducing any clown to a tank with an existing clown though.

Obviously I am a salt water noob so I would wait for Pasfur, Wake, etc. to chime in.

I see no reason why you would have any issues with one black and one orange.
