Thoughts on yellow stripe marroon clownfish

I'd like to have some advice on how to keep these guys, are they peaceful and such. Your experiences with them. I'm looking to get only 1 for my future reef tank. The 45 gallon shallow tank thank you!

I had just one in my 60g reef tank with a bubble tip anemone and it was fine with me and with all my other fish. Now iv have paired them up and now have 2, they are my favourite fish.

If you want to experience symbiotic relationship then you are definitely on the right track. A friend of mine had a green bubble tip anemone. Then he added a maroon clownfish. The clownfish went right into the anemone. Literally took 45-60 seconds for it to occur. It is my understanding that bubble anemones are natural hosts for maroon clowns.
Most people will say that GSM clownfish are somewhat aggressive. Good luck.

I've housed a gold stripe maroon for over a year now. He is very cool to his tank mates unless they come to close to the RBTA. Other than when I stick my hands in the tank to adjust things Is he aggressive, he nips at me. It's kind of funny. Definitely cool looking and his stripes yellow up at different times. They are for sure my favorite clownfish.

They get to be 5" and are quite territorial. The full grown size alone would stop me from adding one to a 45. I vote some variation of ocellaris.

I've had one for years and they are very territorial. It should be the last one in imo.
