How Long Before Clownfish Pair?

So I have a Black true perc clownfish that I have had in my 80 gallon tank for about 3 months now. I put in a slightly bigger orange true perc clownfish. Immediately the smaller black one went after him, the bigger one held his own pretty good. Now after about 8 hours they are swimming around together like they been together for years with not much fighting. Did they really pair up that quick? Or should I not get to happy just yet?

It's normal for them to squabble at first. Clowns are damsels, so keep an eye on them for a week or so.

I too would keep an eye out for them. It`s not for sure they will pair up. Hopefully yours will.
