hmmm only thing I can say is the maroon will eventually have at the ocellaris. Only one species of clown per tank unless you have a very large tank with enough room that they can establish their own territories. That is a lot of fish in a small tank.....watch your nitrates.... :)

40 gallon acrylic overflow tank
DSB
Live Rock
50 gallon wet/dry sump
RIO 2500 pump
100mg Aquazone Ozone generator
Skum Sucker Protein Skimmer
Overhead 5 gallon refugium

5 inch Clown Trigger
4 inch Undulated Trigger
5 inch wrasse

The guys have outgrown the tank and am cycling their new home which was a Christmas gift

My avatar is a tank in my waiting room. 90% of the livestock and coral were handcaught by me. Overcrowding was a problem so the anemone was returned to the sea.
