Hi every one i have a 55g, 29g, and a 20g that I'm planing to use to breed clownfish. I saw that some people have cross-bred clownfish before and thought it would be worth a try but I would like your opinions first. Also if you guys think it would be a good idea then how could I do it. Finally I was planning to have to pairs: M gold-banded maroon F black percula, and then M black percula F gold-banded maroon. Thanks.

If you do I would make sure all are very young,Maroons can be very aggresive.

The maroons are most likely to kill of the clownfish mate before anything happens...

I think Hybrids are kinda luck of the draw if they pair up. my suggestion would be to start with two juveniles that are both small, or you could start with a large perc and a small maroon in hopes that the large perc would become the dominant female. I have a feeling that an already dominant female maroon would be too aggressive for a perc that was not already submissive to her.

Thanks everyone how about i start out with a large percent and a small maroon, then a juvenile percent and a juvenile. Do you guys think that would work. Finally should I remove the baby's or leave them. Thanks

Ive never seen a cross bred maroon and perc. And i could be wrong, but im pretty sure its not possible. Maroons are a different genus than other clowns

They are but I'm going to try anyway because if it did work they would be very cool.
