I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Just the maroon. Have you looked at the maroon goldstripe yet? IMO I like then better than the plain maroon. Only about $5 more than normal.

They are the same species so I assume so. It is like Ocellaris and B&W clowns I think.

Maroon clowns are aggressive towards other maroons and every other clown species. Mine however, is nice to all the other fish. it's like the wise female. I like the one without the goldstripes though lol

You are probably right.

Is there something you don't like about regualr perculas and oscellaris's? You can mix and match them and they are less aggressive than the maroons. Unless of course you have a thing for the maroon, then I would get what you really want. But if it's clowns in general then maybe a b&w pair or even a b&w with an orange oscellaris. if they pair up you get some awesome mixes. If they were to survive .

I beleive they paired a snowflake oscellaris with a black & white to get black ice clowns, which in my opinion are my FAVE clowns. lol
