That's not to say that they cant, or wont, just that it's much less likely to happen with other active fishes in the tank. I have a mated pair of Maroon clowns alone in a 55g that lay their clutch every few weeks. I have a mated pair of Ocellaris clowns in a 75g with a yellow tang and a hippo tang that have never laid an egg.
No offense intended!
Actually I did OK with rearing in reef set up with same types of fish you mentined and in greater numbers. Definitely hard work for mom and dad but amazed at what they would do to protect their babies.
I had better luck breeding/rearing any fish in shallow 33 L with detachable diy paritions on diy wooden stack in my fish rooms.
Few pairs I had in dispaly reef tanks, I did not bother removing as it was safer for my corals to leave the clown as they were since, as you probably know, catching fish out of well established reef tank can be a nightmare!.

It's a sponge. I have several in my tank that look identical. Clown eggs are generally orange.
