How big is your Tank? You could house then as long as they are the same spieces if not they will fight to the dead, I've seen B&W pair up with a regular O. Clown- Just make sure they are O. Clowns and not Percs??

Right now I have an ocellaris in my 34 gallon and I wanted to add a black ocellaris so that would work right?

I say yes as long as it's a oscellaris it should be fine. just get a smaller one than the one you have, better shot of them being male/female that way and less chance of aggression in my opinion.

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

It CAN happen though it would be rare, and even rarer to get the fry to grow up. :-(

They have black ice clowns and all sort of mutations....

It takes alot to breed clowns (actually most fish as they see their young as food).

ORA just released they mixed a snowflake with a B&W and made a B&W snowflake.. looks epic!
