hello! after a lot of patience and time i'm finally to the point where i can add fish to my SW tank a couple days ago i got 2 juvenile ocellaris clown fish. my question is how do i know if they will pair or if they already have? they are small so they must be pretty young. however, at the lfs i got them at and in my tank they are always hanging out together. i never see them pick, chase, or fight eachother. every now and then one will venture away a little bit, but after a minute or less they're right back together it's so cute lol. does this mean they've already paired? if not does it mean there is a good chance they will? just for fun here are a couple pics of them

these pics show how close they stay together 99% of the time lol

Early days, but looks like a pair to me

As they grow, you'll find one will get larger than the other (if not already, hard to tell from photos).

And yes, clown pairs are very cute
