i indeed love the lightning maroon clown but I love the Mocha Storm Clownfish and my maroon clown I have now definitely doesn’t seem to be the mean type of maroon but I could be wrong. Debating on if I want to keep lighting maroon and go with another one or get rid of the lightning maroon and do some designer clowns. Anyone know of the lighting maroon and Mocha Storm Clownfish being together

You could always use an acclimation box to see how the maroon will act.

Get rid of the one you currently have. Then when you get the storm also put in a new lighting. So both fish are being introduce to the same system and the same time.

I was thinking on that. My lightning is literally scared of other fish and coral. A bit weird. I dont know what I’ll try but we will see how things work if I decide to do the mocha and keep the lightning maroon

Mocha Storm is an Occelaris variant. Unless your tank is big enough to scuba dive in, that is a recipe for disaster...
lol yeah very well could be I just know maroons go with maroons and nothing else so i was curious to what other thought.

Possible, sure, but more than likely the larger maroon will kill the ocy. If i were to try this it would probably be the opposite way around with a ocy female and a maroon male. Maroons are finicky with partners and many will turn on their partners too

I actually tried it, long before the internet was there to ask. Even in a six foot long rocked up tank the experiment lasted all of five minutes. It ended with the Occelaris in the Maroons mouth while she attempted to feed it to her anemone.

I managed to extract it, and the happy ending is that episode got my girlfriend (now my wife) to agree to a second tank.

I then bought Joyce Wilkerson's great book, which was the clownfish bible back in those days. Both eventually got proper mates, lived long lives and spawned for me. In different tanks ;)
