Clownfish pairing

I've had a juvenile maroon fish in my 15 gallon nano tank for two months and just introduced a black clownfish and the two are inseparable. They swim all over the tank together in unison right next to each other. Is it possible that two different types can mate because these two "look" like they are in love.

No and the maroon will get too big for that tank. I've seen them get up to 6 inches (female) and will probably not tolerate the other one.

I agree. I have a maroon (solo clown) in my 10 gal until he outgrows it. But I don't recommend keeping the two together
