I can totally tell with my clowns. The blacks are ora but the regular ones are just wild caught. The wild caught ones were the first to host my coral and they seem to be nippy with each other while the other set isn't and they are bigger and older.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yeah if you are mixing bw ocellaris with orange and white ocellaris. They wont mate if one is an Amphiprion they wont, also should be noted that the two species don't always get along so mix and match can lead to issues if you're not careful with selection

I just realizedhow bad my grammar is in that last post, it makes it confusing. Yes they have a chance of breeding if the are the same type as in ocellaris or amphipiron no matter what their color is.
Mixing breeds can lead to aggression between them, and prob shouldn't be done. Unless you have a large enougj tank for them to have their own area

Yes it can be done. My LFS used to have a mated pair of b&w and orange and white in their display tank. Also it is possible to have a mated pair of different species as well. There is a guy here in salt lake that has a mated black ocellaris and true perc pair that he is selling, pricey though.... $250

I dont think keeping different species of clowns together is a good idea, at least thats what I've always been told
