You can generally add clowns in groups, so long as they are introduced at the same time. The majority of hobbyists would suggest that you not add any more to this setup. I agree with the LFS. But it is certainly not an exact science.

ocellaris clowns are much more likely to coexist in small groups than just about any other clown, more often than not b/c they are captive raised and are generally not as territorial as their wildcaught relatives. I would still be cautious adding more clowns, but i think you should be fine.
