White striped maroon. Very aggressive (will bite you!)

oh really? i have never seen mine bite and its in there with a hippo tang, but then again the hippo tang is the alpha of the tank, so I see now, also mine isnt really aggressive towards the other fish? and when its feeding (it eats shrimp and bloodworms) anyways when its feeding it doesnt eat very fast it usually waits for the hippo tang to finsish first?

They are among the most aggressive clown species. Especially if they pair up. I've lost several corals because my big female (before i got rid of her) could pick up a 12 head frogspawn colony & chuck it into the sand, killing a couple heads each time.

They're smart enough not to pick on the alpha fish (ie. your Hippo) but towards something as slow & harmless as a seahorse, I wouldn't trust it. Could work, but I limited my clownfish/seahorse combos to Ocellaris or Percula. Skunk clowns would also be fine.

The hippo would not be ok with seahorses!
