Clownfish swap ?

My lfs has offered me a straight swap ! His pair of ocean caught black clarkii clowns for my breeding pair of tank raised oscellaris clowns ! Is this a good swap or would I be robbing myself ? Thoughts please !

You sure they're wild caught. I'm pretty sure only sustainable aquatics has black clarkiis. However it is a good trade if you have room for the clarkiis. They get a lot bigger than ocellaris.

Thanks ! Yeh it's a great lfs and the pair he has offered me are not actually for sale they are in his display tank ! My main reason for wanting to go ahead with it is I have a really nice pink rose tip bubble anemone which has recently split and its pretty big now and I think because my clowns are constantly spawning they won't even look at it lol ! I'm hoping a small pair of clarkii,s will host it and the lfs will have the time to raise the fry from my pair ! I know there's no garentee that they will host but I guess there's more chance with them being juveniles !
