I wouldn´t add more fish. Maybe they will give you some crabs instead of the fish ? I mean two clowns and the crabs. :)

Your clownfish can be just as aggressive as the damsels. They're still related to the damsels.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I edited my last post because after reading it I saw it would be mistaken. Sorry for that.

That´s right. I know one clown who will try to bite you as soon as your fingertips reach into the water. That´s an aggressive one. :D

its best to introduce clowns at the same time, why dont you get a mushroom coral or something, dont those qualify as a fish since they are invertebrate and they are living....

Why not just get 2 smaller fish like a citron goby and six line wrasse? Don't be like every one else in this world getting clowns. Man, be different.

you can try a firefish or a small goby. that way there wont be any aggression when another clown in introduced into your tank.
