I am planning to add a new pair of clowns to my 140g mixed reef. Love to hear about others favorites (pics included would be great!).

PS - currently clown free in the 140g.

I like them all!
But I do lean towards what's in my avatar, my picasso's.

I need to get some updated pic's. They have matured a lot, and look much better now.

this is going to sound silly. but out of all my clowns my favorite clowns are still my reg ocellaris. they were my first SW fish.

+1 I appreciate WC varieties more than "designer" varieties.

True percs...can't go wrong with a "classic".

Looking at your location, you actually aren't too far from me...doesn't seem to be a whole lot of reefers in our neck of the woods.

Not silly at all, one of my first and favs also.
Funny, I skipped replying to this post at first because I didn't want my saying my picasso's being my fav would belittle anyone w/out expensive or so called designer clowns, yet there always seems to be some people that feel the need to knock mine or other people's choices!LOL

yes beauty is in the eye of the beholder. these 2 have a personality that puts them in the front of the line in my clown collection. she owns my whole 120g main dt, and she watches everyone who walks by daring them to stick a hand in her house. i have other clowns, but these are my favorite.

For some reason I really like onyx clowns, always have, so they get my vote.

How about some SA Designer Fancy Snows?

I also dig the SA Designer Snow Onyx, Rod's Onyx, and Snowcasso's.

+1 for non-designer ocellaris

Or, depending on what other fish are in the tank, maybe something more substantial, like a clarkii or tomato complex clown, or even the sunkist skunk clowns...

Im a fan or Percula, it doesn't matter if its a regular perc, a onyx, or a picasso. Percs have a great personality, and temperament....

My favorite is A. Tricinctus (Hard to keep and doesn't ship well). Also like the Spotcinctus (A. Bicinctus varient) and A. Akyndynos as well.

It's been said a ton already, but IMO, the percula, or the ocellaris. Not just based upon looks, but also the way they move, and their personalities. Look up a couple of youtube videos of different types of clowns just swimming around, and in my opinion you'll fall for one of those two species every time. They way they bounce around when they swim just makes them look like all they are ever doing is goofing around and playing, and because of this, watching them always puts me in a better mood.

Only found off the coast of Papua new guinea. A long time friend of mine holds the only aquaculture export license in new guinea and is expanding on work the SEAsmart program started, only as a commercial business instead of a government research project. He's the only one in the world who can collect and export them, until a successful captive breeding program is established.

I have a few favs in no particular order:

True Perculas
Picassos
Snowflakes
Gold stripe maroon

Since you have a large tank, you could get two pairs or maybe three.

I like the B&W Ocellaris clowns not hard to find but look amazing when they mature and are completely jet black.

Black clowns

And Picassos

The trick is to find a picasso you really like. You have to see them in person IMO.
