    Has anyone tried breeding an orange ocellaris with a black n white ocellaris? If so, what were your results as far as a new breed? I've heard the fry are born true perculas but I don't know if that's fact or theory. I currently have an ocellaris and was thinking of adding a black one to my tank.

    A lot of breeding information is available on ReefCentral. I hate to send you to another site, but why re-invent the wheel?

    They're both occelaris, breeding two of the same species won't give you a completely different one. Breeding a "normal" clown with a black and white will only gives different color variations of each.
