2 pairs of Ocellaris Clownfish

really would like to have two pairs one being the normal and the other being the black and white, what would be a good tank size for each pair to have their side of the tank to make this possible or is it not possible?

Minimum 30 gallons. Why don't ya try and get two of the same kind? Just make sure one is smaller then the other and the bigger of the two will become female. When they pair up they are neat to watch.

You misread, 2 pairs. 4 clowns right?

I think you'd need at least a 100+ gallons

aren't they the same kind because both pair would be ocellaris just different in coloring?

I think it's hard to say. it really comes down to the attitude of the fish. U might get lucky. U might not. I have seen it done and work but doesn't mean it will. I have a black and white and an orange and white pair. The bw being the female. And she is tough. gives my trigger a run for it's money nearly every day
