here is an article from Manhattan Reefs by Sanjay Joshi and his experience of breeding a true perc and black an white ocellaris
Manhattan Reefs - The Odd Couple (A. percula "Onyx" X A. ocellaris "Darwin")

Also (I believe it is mentioned in the article) but you do find hybrid clowns in the ocean as well. One that is thought to be a hybrid by biologists is Amphiprion leucokranos, which is supposedly a hybrid of A. sandaracinos and A. chrysopterus.

Yeah also many "true" percs are ocelaris that the lfs mislabeled and was paid extra for...
This is why it is important to know the difference between a True Perc and Ocellaris, because yes some LFS are shady and charge an arm and a leg for an Ocellaris that is labeled as a True Perc

Thats a neat article and I concede... kinda I stil maintain that a budding aquarist probably shouldn't get two fish that more often than not are aggressive towards eachother.

I gotta add, my perfect little foursome of clowns is having an aggressor issue. The regular oscelarris, female, is bugging the other oscellaris and one of my black clowns. It's nothing major right now but it could become a problem down the line. Glad I have multiple tanks just in case. lol

So any clowns can turn aggressive, its just the fish i guess it depends on.

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