    I'm looking into peacefull clowns, that can be in a "community tank" (to use a freshwater fish term). i summarized the following. How correct is it? (common name, latin name, origin and comment)

    Three-Banded Anemonefish, Maroon Clownfish
    Amphiprion Tricinctus
    Western Pacific.
    These Clowns are peaceful towards other fish in the aquariums.

    Pink Skunk Clown
    Amphiprion Perideraion.
    Coral Sea.
    This Clown can be aggressive towards others, however it is not the rule.


    Fire Clownfish
    Amphiprion Ephippium.
    Indo-West Pacific.
    Very peaceful species. Recommended for raising due to it's size.


    Orange-Fin Anemonefish
    Amphiprion Chrysopterus.
    Western Pacific.
    This species is peaceful towards other tankmates.


    Mauritian Anemonefish
    Amphiprion Chrysogaster.
    Western Indian Ocean.
    A peaceful species.


    Twoband Anemonefish
    Amphiprion Bicinctus.
    Western Indian Ocean.
    Twoband Anemonefish belongs to peaceful species.


    Barrier Reef Anemonefish
    Amphiprion Akindynos.
    Western Pacific.
    This species is peaceful.





    ps.
    I had Pink Skunk Clown and they were peacefull.

    The maroon clown gets very big and is the more aggresive of the lot. If you add the clowns to your tank at once there shouldn't be too much of a problem opposed to adding one then another a few months later

    i think this oines common name is wrong, Also same comon name for another species.

    Three-Banded Anemonefish, Maroon Clownfish
    Amphiprion Tricinctus
    Western Pacific.
    These Clowns are peaceful towards other fish in the aquariums.

    I though maroon is agro, as confirmed, but I think the three-banded is not.
    I should have included pictures, hmmm....

    black percs and tomatoes are agro too, not sure where you got that from

    riaan agree with you that maybe that maroon info is wrong, another name for them is the spine cheek clown, and their scientific name is premnas biaculeatus ( spelling may be off). And as far as i know the fire clownfish is aggro too, cant remember where i read that, i think it may have been here on masa?
