Good choice, good choice. Clowns in pairs act much more calm and behave better. The params are all good.

Dallops, adding a Damsel is a very bad thing to do. To remove it, you have to catch a very fast, sneaky fish whcih can mean taking out everything. Or if you leave it in, all of your other fish would suffer from attacks.

That is correct. Clowns are territioril when a new Clown is added to the tank, so to reduce this you have to add everyone at the same time for little hassels.

Just a quick comment. If you want to cycle with the Damsels, they are easy to remove. Every time you feed your fish, use a net to place the food in the tank. Within a couple of days your Damsel will be jumping into the net for you.
