false perc and maroon clowns

ok so i am getting a new 60 gallon tank, and i have a 20 gallon now. but i already have 2 false perc clowns. i wanted to get a pair of maroon clowns to put in the 60 gallon. i know you can put clown fish together, but i was wondering if i introduce them all into the tank at the same time, would they fight?

you tank is to small for 2 sets of clowns. they will fight and eventually one will die. we have a 120 gallon and i wouldnt even attempt it in that. si just keep one pair.

I can attest that the maroons are the most evil of all clowns. I adore mine but would never ever think of trying to add another clown to the tank for them to terrorize. It is also not a good practice to mix clown species.

I added another to mine and got real lucky that the orginal one didnt kill the new one. Now they are always together.

I added the same species to one of my clowns and it worked well but they both are very young.
I haven´t tried different kinds of the clowns becaise everybody told me not to do it. Even the lfs told me.

Regarding the maroons, those can be really evil. I know one which is always trying to attack your fingers as soon as they are under the water and he bites ! This guy even looks evil !

yeah, maroons are the meanest clowns in my opinion. but i wouldnt trade mine for anything, had him since he was an itty bitty thing.
