With the exception of Clarki Clowns, Skunk Clowns, Tomato Clowns, these guys are flat out mean, and will try to take a bite outta you when cleaning the glass.

any reef fish is fine. just be carefull on how many clowns u buy. i was told when i got mine that they would be fine in my tank in a large group so i bought 5. that was a mistake. i had to take one back for like half the value that i bought him and i lost one from the other three killing it.

so in short never get more than two.

Yeah the ocellaris clowns are great fish. Don't bother anyone unless they go into their home. I have two and they're like dogs. Follow you on the glass, will swim right up to your hand. Could care less what my other fish are doing. If you're into it get a pair. They swim all around together playing and stuff.
