I was led to believe it is a tomatoe clown but the ones I've seen in shops have only 1 stripe.It is about 5 inches long and I'm presuming it is an adult.

Yeah I think the orange nosed one is a young black and white perc,that orange nose will fill in. The other one I still think is a maroon,id welcome other opinions tho.

Yes Carol I think your right it is a maroon clown fish.Do you think it's possible for me to find a juvenile maroon and add it to the tank.

Well its a risk,Maroons are more agressive than say percs. I seem to remember some time back I was in a similar situation,had a big girl and found a very small fish for her. She did give him one hell of a time but they bonded and bred. It is always a risk tho.

The red coloured one is a maroon.  The other one is maybe a black and white ocellaris
