I also have an orange and a black, and I'm very glad that I have two different fish. In my experience, anyways, they bonded almost immediately. I don't know if I just got lucky, but I've wondered if it might be because they're different colors. Like, if they see each other as slightly less threatening than their former tank mates? I doubt it, but I don't know how clownfish brains work... They've had tiny little dominance squabbles- they're still juveniles- but nothing at all major. Just a little chasing occasionally. But they still spend most of their time together, so I think it's working out well. My orange clown was the first fish in my tank, and I added the black one about a month later, so they were from separate tanks, purchased at separate times. Again, I don't know if my great clown experience is related to the different colors or not, but for me, I don't think there's been any kind of problem with having an orange ocellaris and a black one...

Cool, thanks! I'm still undecided as to which to get but I think I'll be willing to get a black and an orange again!

Totally a personal choice, but I love having the two different colors. They just make my tank fun. And they have the best personalities. I love my clowns! <3
