Ocellaris question!

Instead of having 2 ocellaris clownfish would it be possible to have 1 regular ocellaris and 1 black an white ocellaris?

You certainly can mix them. They are the same breed just a different color morph.

As a matter of fact I have a Black Ice Snowflake Clownfish from ORA. It's a cross between a regular snowflake and black ocellaris.

Ideally you want juveniles and introduce them at the same time. Good luck!

What happens if you don't? Do they get too aggressive with eachother? Possibly stress to death?

No just kill each other. It isn't that hard to do. When I lost my male bw clown, I had a small orange clown in a tank I was taking down. Size matters and they hit it off.
