Does anyone have a Yellowstripe Maroon Clown? I'm getting ready to set up my first sw aquarium, and I would like to see what your experiences are with these fish. Any imput would be very much appreciated.

I love Maroons. They are extremely hardy and active, but the downside is they can reach 4 or 5 inches and become somewhat aggressive in some cases. Other choices would include the Tomato and Cinnamon, several species can be bought tank raised, including the Ocellaris.

Yes. I've viewed many species. I'm just having a hard time choosing between the Yellowstripe Maroon, and the Ocellaris.

The tank size is either going to be a 55 or 75. I can't give you exact brands but we are going to be using a filter, protien skimmer, live rock, sand (not sure if live or not yet), timer, heater, thermo, hydrometer, test kit, salt mix (of course), and then we are special ordering a twin bulb hood for whichever tank we get and will use a full spectrum, and either a blue or blue actinic bulb. I don't think I forgot anything, but I might have.
I don't have an exact plan worked out, but I want to stick with either a few larger colorful fish (yellowstripe maroon, yellow tang, or a moray... etc.), or a lot of smaller colorful fish (ocellaris, longfin fairy wrasse, purple firefish... etc.)

In that case, the Maroon will be fine with a Tang and moray, as long as the moray is a smaller Zebra you should be fine. Some morays will get too big and nasty, some tangs will get too big... your research will lead to success.
