Is it possible for a True and False Perc to mate?

I have a true and false and they seemed to be paired. Constantly together! They are new to the tank so I dont expect mating to happen anytime soon, but if it is possible, I can see it happening and I would like to be succesful at raising them.

What is green water?'

TIA

... and then you would be raising "Maybe Clowns"?
Actually both of your clowns appear to be False (A. ocellaris) . Check my gallery for a photo of A. percula.

I hate to burst your bubble but none of those are true percs. Both are oscelaris or false percs. That's probably why no one was responding. But being that I too am a learning individual here at the forum, here's my response.

I have to agree. Both look like false percs to me. A closer pic of each would help.
As far as the "green water"...what do you mean? I have heard DT's photoplankton refered to as green water. Is this what you mean?

Hmm one is darker and around the eyes it seems more shaded unlikle the bigger one that is all orange with the black eye. Ill try to get a close pic if I can tomorrow. I was under the impression that if there was a dark area around the eyes, it was a good indication that it was a true perc.

Either way it really doesnt matter to me if they are true or not. I just want to know if they will/chance of breeding

You can tell a false from a true by the shading of the black line next to the white stripe. A False has a distinct thin black line. A True has a black line that fades into the orange. A better picture would help.

Ok here are some pics. Sorry they move to quick for a really nice shot. The small one seems to fade the black into the orange.
