GSMs and onyx clownfish

i have a pair of baby onyx clowns in a bc14 for now. theyre gaining their colors, but no pics right now. when i first started in the hobby i bought a tank that came with two GSMs, but traded them out later once i read that they were too small for it.
the female liked showing off, it seemed

Despite their temperment, I'd have to agree that the GSM's take the cake as far as looks.

I would have to agree.

I would almost say A. Nigripes but they are so difficult to ship and they are rarely for sale. It is just too bad that they are touchy fish as they are so pretty.

I'm in love with latezonatus.. they are large but elegant and their personalities are of the sweetest temperment.

I'm also very fond of misbar\picasso type percs with just absolute silly markings

I really like A. fuscocaudatus (sp?), but to tell you the truth, it would be very hard for any clowns to be prettier than my first pair of ocellaris.

Well out of all the clowns I have had, I am down to chrysogaster, nigripes, and B&W ocellaris so it must be one of those species....

Prob the chrysogasters though, I still find myself watching them for hours on end.

I prefer the black and white ocellaris, like the one that have no orange on them. Either that or Rod's mama onyx.l.. she's so beautiful.

My gold strip maroon I have had for 6 years. He's actually that dark in color.

Do all GSM clowns eventually darken to the that dark dark maroon like the one above? mine are still young but they are just a vibrant red.
