Percula clownfish and lighting questions

i am getting either 1 or 2 true percs tomorow. I need to know if i should get one or two of them. If it will be compatible with my small gold banded maroon clown. And i would appreciate any comments or stries u have about these percs.

My second question is , i have 3.4 watts per gallon, what does that mean for future corals i will buy. can i get lps, sps, zoos????

thanks guys

Well first off do not put those clowns together. You really shouldnt mix clowns together ecspecially with a maroon. Unless your tank is big enough. I have a fire and a perc in my 55 and they go at it every now and again. As for your lighting, what kind is it? I personally think 3.4 watts is too low. I have a MH fixture with 492 watts in my 55. That is 8.9 watts per gallon.

Agreed with Aquareefer. I would not get the perculas. It is not a good idea to mix species of clowns.

I wanted to have 2 percs and a maroon too and everyone that I talked to said no the maroon does not do well with other clowns. you can have a male and female maroon as long as they are introduced at the same time. but no other clowns with her.
