I have a question about clownfish.

I was going to get a pair of B&W ocellaris clownfish, but in the back I my mind I knew that I really liked the naked ones. Do you guys know if I could make a pair of 1 Naked and 1 B&W clownfish? I read like both, but I am not sure if the Naked is a variant of Ocellaris or Percula.

I would say yes because the Naked Clown is from the ocellaris family.

Cool I thought one website was calling it a Naked Percula, but I re-read it and it said Naked FALSE Percula

A new LFS opened up 10 minutes away a few weeks ago, and I kept forgetting about it. I decided I wanted to check them out, and I needed dry rock/sand for the new Biocube. They were awesome!!! They specialize in non-common SW fish! Of course they had a few common ones, but mainly really cool fish. A quarter of their tanks were filled with diamond watchman gobies, which I found odd, but cool! Practically 1/2 of their tanks are devoted to clownfish. They had Naked ones even!!! Like 6 of them! They also had b&ws. So I know where I am getting my fish they had all of my stocklist. Even ORA spotted mandys. New favorite store the place is well kept up and the people are knowledgable and nice.

Oh, and I got my rock and sand from them too. 15 lbs of Pukani dry rock and 15 lbs of aragonite. I thought my rockscape was really cool, and then I put the sand in. Before and after...

I am kinda stuck on what clownfish to buy. Which grouping do you guys think would look good TOGETHER?

1. 2 Black And White
2. 2 Naked
3. 1 Naked and 1 Black and White (I am just not sure that they will look aesthetic together)

I personally would get combo 3. I like variety!
