A. Chrysogaster. When attempting to ID a member's clownfish, I came across this species. Would love to have a pair some day.

There's nothing prettier than a nice GSM -- I've seen some with strangely shaped or small fins, which I don't like, but a GSM like the ones posted in this thread is a sight to behold. Punch and Judy my GSM pair are tank-bred, not the best stock, but they're rescues; I took them in because they had been through several owners and I knew I could provide a good, permanent home for them. They're misbars and don't have much yellow, and Judy has a scar on her nose where she tangled with a large Xanthid crab, but I love 'em to bits. With their funny faces, red eyes and giant fins they look like sweet teddy bears to me... until they attack me with those teeth!

Just getting black saddlebacks to spawn would be a feat as there is only 2 report occurances, let alone trying to cross them.

A black and white picasso would just be a misbarred black ocellaris. If you want to breed a picasso to a black ocellaris it may be much easier than the previously mentioned crossing.

I still think the normal ocellaris pattern is the prettiest
