Interesting question.... Now I'm not an expert at all, so this is just my opinion, but I would think that it is possible... I know that trigger fish are considered to be aggressive fish, though the pink-tailed trigger is on the smaller/more peaceful side. You might be able to house this particular trigger with one of the more aggressive clowns, such as a maroon clown.
I believe there are a few things to consider though... First off, what other fish do you plan to add? If things just get more and more aggressive you could run into some problems...
Also, If I were to attempt this, I would add the clown first, and give it a few weeks to establish a territory. Another thing to remember is that trigger fish are not reef safe... So no anemone for the clown, and no other inverts.
Lastly, I think a lot of this has to do with the individual temperament of the fish... Either way I would say try it, but watch things closely and
be prepared to possibly re-locate one of them.
