Clownfish?

Would I be able to add a black and a orange Ocellaris clownfish at the same time without them fighting? Iv read mixed opinions, I didn't really want any because they are too common now but if I have to have them I want black and partner wants orange so was wondering if I could get one of each?

I don't see why not. Alot of people mix their clowns and the black and the orange are both oscellaris so it should be an easier time. My one pair came mated up already but my orange ones weren't any trouble until I added them to the same tank as the b&w's.

I'm curious to see what others have to say...

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

Me too from what I have read they tolerate each other and sometimes pair up but then I have read some horror stories, I'd like to hear if anyone has done this?
