I put a gold stripe maroon in my 29Gal BioCube today. Seems to be doing fine. Of coarse, he happens to be the only fish in the tank at this point.

Maroons are aggressive fish. Be careful if adding others to the tank, chances are they are gonna get harassed.

There is not much difference at all. The main physical differences are Percula's usually have thicker black borders around their white bands(usually..), and Ocellaris' get a little bigger. That and they are found in different locations naturally. But their personalities are very similar.

What's done is done and it is too late to change, but for anyone else that may be pondering this, the aggressive fish should always be added last after the others have had a chance to establish territories.

I am currently thinking of restocking and getting a maroon clown. So are you saying if i get the maroon last then everything should be ok later down the road?

no guarantees, what I am saying is that the chances of it working will be better than if it were the first fish added. I would also be sure to get a small one.

Try a cinnamon, they are a bit larger than percs, and really cool personalities. Would be a good sub for a maroon.

I agree with Lisa that there is no guarantee but the chances are better. Much better.

I really like them too but it is often said they could be vicious.

I just added a maroon clown to my 36 about a month ago and he's doing really well. I have a Dwarf lion that is about twice his size and a 6 line wrasse that's a little smaller...all perfectly cordial with one another. He actually seems to get a long really well with my wrasse; they're usually hanging out together.

I would warn that he is a really hearty eater though. He may out compete a fire fish or other fish that like to feed lower in the water column and he does frequently go after the smaller feeder fish for my dwarf.

Otherwise I highly recommend...he's one of my personal favorites.
