    well in my 37 i have a blue chromis, a blue velvet damsel, a six line, and a true perc clown. i want to add another clown so my clown has a mate. i plan on getting rid of the damsel so i wont overload my tank. my question is do i have to add a percula clown or can i add an occelaris?

    It won't matter they're so closely related that they'll get along just fine. And also they can/have been cross bred.
